What Will You Learn?

The ADHD Awareness Course has been created to evolve people's understanding of ADHD (also know as ADD, or attention deficit disorder, and Hyperkinetic Disorder, which is often used to described a more severe presentation of the condition)

ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has had a lot of bad press and is often misunderstood by those who don't have a connection to someone with the condition.

To understand the condition, we must first understand what it is. Students will learn, about symptoms, related conditions, variations of the condition, and more.

Although the most commonly diagnosed, and one of the most highly-researched, mental health disorders in children, there is still a lot to understand about the cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The ADHD Awareness Course shares some of the most recent research and information, so that students can get a better grasp of what is, and isn't.

A very important consideration for those caring for those with, or who themselves have, ADHD, is the considerations and implications of the law and educational institutes. The course discusses how ADHD, as a neurological difficulty rather than a physical disability, is treated within these communities.

You will learn the pros and cons of the inclusion of a child with ADHD within mainstream schools and specialist educations, both from the perspective of the child themselves and the wider community. You will gain insight into what these children deal with on a daily basis and how their actions can be misinterpreted as something else entirely.We will reinforce the approach of educating a child with ADHD and how to use some of the positive symptoms of the condition to help them learn in a way that benefits them.

The course discusses the use of medication and therapies, and the impact/possible side effects of these treatments. It also offers practical tips, techniques, and coping strategies for the parents of children with ADHD.

Although the ADHD Awareness Course discusses childhood ADHD in-depth, this can be a lifelong condition and an estimated 4% of the UK adult population have the condition, though for adults this can often go undiagnosed.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

The ADHD Awareness Course is an essential source of information for the parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the educators and carers who work with children with the condition or would like to.

This course will help students to fully understand the condition, how it is considered by various communities and treated within the medical professions, how to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate a child's learning, and how to better understand a child, or adult, with ADHD and alter your own behaviour to better communicate with them.

This does not mean that the course is restricted to these groups, however, anyone interested in the various aspects of the condition will learn a lot here.
