Course description

ADHD Awareness - CPD Accredited 

Are you the parent, teacher or carer of a child who: fidgets a lot? always loses things? is constantly on the go? cannot pay attention? forgets things constantly? It’s frustrating but it may be a sign a child has ADHD. The important thing is to recognize the signals so you can get help straight away. Children - and adults - diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be challenging, but it can also be a blessing.

People with ADHD have special gifts - often they’re very intelligent and creative. You can help them to nurture those skills to fulfill their maximum potential and live life to the full. After all, you’re not alone. About 11% of children aged 4-17 years (that’s 6.4 million youngsters) have been diagnosed with ADHD in the US. Through our course you will learn what ADHD is and different ways to live with it. Once you recognize why a child behaves in a certain way, you can understand them better and help them thrive.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course will benefit everyone from parents and family members, to those who work with or come into contact with children and teenagers with ADHD, either professionally or as a volunteer. You may know children diagnosed with ADHD and this will help you empathize with their behavior so you can work with them without frustration, tears or tantrums. If you work with children as a teacher, teaching assistant, classroom volunteer, carer, this course will help you spot the signs that a child may have ADHD and start the ball rolling to get the right help for them. You can also help other children learn about ADHD, whether it's in the classroom or in their club. Our easy-to-use online modules mean you can work from anywhere, at your own pace, to learn how you can help children with ADHD. If you interact with children, this course will benefit you!
