Course Description

The Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder course aims to give you an understanding of what ADHD is and the issues related to it. It is aimed primarily at parents, teachers and classroom assistants although other people affected by ADHD may also find it beneficial, especially adults who may never have been diagnosed with the condition when younger. 

Throughout the course you will learn about the causes and some of the myths that surround the condition. Furthermore it will give you an understanding of the signs and symptoms to look out for as well as the impact that it can have in different areas of life.
