ADHD has been a topic of intense study, scrutiny and stigma in the medical community, and broader society, for decades. The symptoms of ADHD can be perfectly typical at an early stage of development, which can be confusing for parents and teachers. However, when symptoms interfere with the child’s daily life, symptoms become a problem.
This course covers what ADHD is/is not from a clinical perspective, the different types of ADHD and what the characteristics are, an overview of treatment options, and strategies for effective management of symptoms and confidence-building techniques to empower your child with ADHD.
