Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that may affect an individual’s ability to self-regulate, which may manifest in characteristics such as impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention. ADHD is one of the most diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorders in the US, with anywhere from 7% to 18% of the paediatric population being diagnosed.

Children as young as two are being diagnosed and the diagnosis explains behaviours that can continue into adulthood. At times there may be psychiatric comorbidities that need to be acknowledged and understood.

Build on your toolkit as what may work for one student, may not work for another. Come along to this informative, interactive workshop to find out how you can further assist the ADHD students in your class and the wider school community.
