Training agenda

The aim of this course is to educate Secondary school teachers and SNAs on ADHD and give them the strategies and methods to help, support and get the best from an ADHD child in your classroom.

The skills explored will increase classroom productivity and attendance, so improving confidence and peer to peer relationships in pupils with ADHD and engagement of Educators, improving understanding and awareness of ADHD nationwide. This programme will motivate teachers to become ADHD champions in their school, enabling them to take appropriate individual and collective action within their schools towards a positive classroom experience for all.

Our ADHD course for educators is structured in three sections:

1) What ADHD is and isn’t, including up to date research, key features, diagnostic criteria comorbidities, executive functioning impairments, emotional disregulation and the different presentations of ADHD, including gender.

2) The learner’s experience of ADHD, including working with parents.

3) Strategies that work in the classroom- including support for executive functioning, literacy, anxiety, movement and activity and therapeutic approaches.

The course is structured around the 6 key strategies for achieving good outcomes in education for learners with ADHD of all ages.
