Event Description

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a term used to describe a spectrum of learning and behavioural and socialization differences. The negative impact of ADHD within schools, families and on our society can be highly significant unless proactive systems and strategies for effective teaching and management are introduced and adapted for specific individuals.

This full day course will enlighten delegates on the causes and prevalence of attention difficulties, as well as prepare all with hands-on, practical and research-based tools to support and deliver a range of options for inclusive education and to meet the needs of children and young persons with ADHD and co-existing conditions.

This conference is suitable for educators and parents!
