Cambridgeshire - Introduction to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Ref: C2228854

In this 5-week course, we will consider the current understanding of ADHD including gender differences, behaviours and possible causes/ risk factors. We will look at conditions that typically co-occur with ADHD and talk about their impact on the child. We then consider how to support children and young people with ADHD both at home and in educational settings. In the final couple of sessions, we will focus on what to do if you suspect a child has ADHD, how assessments are carried out, the role of the DSM, how to get an EHCP and where to go for further support.
