Empowering teachers to deliver outstanding outcomes for children/ young people with ADHD through raising awareness and classroom strategies.

This half-day event will be structured in two sections:

  • What ADHD is and isn’t, including up to date research, key features, diagnostic criteria, comorbidities, executive functioning impairments, emotional dysregulation and the different presentations of ADHD, including gender.
  • Strategies that work in educational settings - including support for executive functioning, literacy, anxiety, movement and activity and therapeutic approaches.
