Course Description

The best support for a child with ADHD comes when both home and school work together. Understanding the key challenges both face as well as how to manage them is the first step towards planning effective support. This course will demosntrate how self regulation and executive function can make home and school life for a child with ADHD and will show both parents and teachers what they can do to help. Self Regulation is a key area of support in ADHD. Self regulation refers to our ability to manage our own internal world, our emotions, our impulses and our behaviour. Through no fault of their own many children with ADHD have difficulties with self regulation and these difficulties can get them in trouble and lead to poor self esteem. Interestingly, its not just the child's regulation skills that can cause problems but also the parent and teachers regulation skills that can also cause problems! This course will teach how self regulation is effected in the ADHD brain and show you the role that you will can play in supporting them. The course will present a number of different regulation strategies and techniques which can be used at home and in school to support the ADHD child.
