Course Overview

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder of children. Children with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable control their impulses, or they may have trouble paying attention.

ADHD is a common disorder that impacts focus, self-control and other skills important in daily life. It’s caused by differences in brain anatomy and wiring, and often runs in families. As part of this course we will investigate what ADHD is, its causes, symptoms and a range of strategies that can be used by childcare practitioners when working with those who have ADHD.
