ADHD is one of the most common childhood conditions and it can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. ADHD is thought to affect between 3-9% of school age children and young people in the UK (NICE, 2013).
Likewise, around 700,000 people in the UK are on the Autism Spectrum. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by Autism in the UK alone (National Autism Society, 2016).
This course covers how Autism and ADHD present and interact in individual children. The course provides practical strategies to help practitioners support pupils with both ADHD and ASD as well as support pupils who present with social communication needs and attention difficulties without a formal diagnosis.
Delegates will leave the course with:
• A practical understanding of how to support pupils with co-occurring social communication and attention needs with or without a formal diagnosis of ASD & ADHD.
