A large number of people with ADHD suffer from anxiety and even depression. Sometimes anxiety can be hard to spot in children because they don't tell you, or don't know how to tell you, that they are feeling anxious. Anxiety in young children is very upsetting not just for the child but for their parents and family too. This course will show you how to identify anxiety and how to help children identify their feelings. The course will present a number of simple techniques that can be used at home to help reduce anxiety in children with ADHD.
