Working with ADHD – Level 2

Event/course Code EY 21/003
Event/course type Training course
Event Introduction This course will build on content from the ‘Introduction to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)’ level 1 course. By the end of this course practitioners who are working directly with children and young people and/or their families will have the essential knowledge and understanding of ADHD, enabling them to work more effectively with those children and families. The course will particularly focus on supporting and managing ADHD in children and young people. Attendance at level 1 ADHD training is required before commencement of this course.

ADHD is thought to affect 3–9% of school-age children and young people in the UK (NICE 2013). It is essential that these individuals have a positive experience of care and support. For this to be achieved staff need a good understanding of ADHD and how to work effectively with the difficulties in their role.

The training will be led by AfC practitioners who are all too aware of the local context. They will share their own experiences and will be able to discuss and signpost local provision.

This session will take place virtually, joining instructions will be emailed 24 hours before the course date.
Event Content The day will provide practitioners with detailed information on managing the difficulties of ADHD, such as challenging behaviour, inattention and hyperactivity. There will also be time given to some of the additional difficulties so often experienced, such as problems with organisation, friendships and executive functioning. The training will be delivered using a multimedia; PowerPoint, DVD clips and experiential exercises including case studies and small group work.

This training session will be led by members of the Emotional Health Service.

Those that have attended the training in the past have really valued the knowledge and experience of AfC practitioners who deliver or facilitate training. The local expertise, knowledge and understanding makes a real difference to the delivery, we strongly recommend practitioners consider accessing the Level 1 and Level 2 courses if they are working with a child with ADHD.
Event Learning Outcomes On completion of the course delegates will have:
