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. 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), so that those with the condition don't go undiagnosed, as, once understood, ADHD is manageable and those with the condition can go on to be high achievers, who often even attribute their success to having the condition.
This course guides you through 8 comprehensive modules:
To understand the condition, we must first understand what it is. The first module offers an in-depth answer to that very simple question; giving students a strong platform from which to learn, with information on: 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 second module of 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, understood about the condition.
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 third module discusses how ADHD, as a neurological difficulty rather than a physical disability, is treated within these communities.
Inclusion is the responsibility of everyone but as the community that has made the most progress in this area, this module discusses inclusion within educational institutes. This part of the ADHD Awareness Course discuses 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. The module then goes on to discuss broader concerns of inclusion within other communities.
Module five of the course helps to further understand the children living with ADHD, by giving us an insight into what they deal with on a daily basis and how their actions can be misinterpreted as something else entirely. With this information in mind this module goes on to teach students how to approach 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.
For a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to get the most out of their education, certain strategies and reasonable adjustments need to be made to accommodate the way that they learn. Divided into easy-to-use sections, the sixth module in the ADHD Awareness Course offers suggestions to that help to remove learning barriers and achieve better outcomes for children with ADHD.
As with other conditions, there are ADHD medications available. The seven module of the course discusses the use of medication and therapies, and the impact/possible side effects of these treatments. This module 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. The final module of the course discusses ADHD in adulthood and what this can mean for those affected.
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, as anyone interested in the various aspects of the condition will learn a lot here.
