ADHD: Understand First, Support Second

ADHD can have a major effect on the lives of young people. It can cause them to struggle at school, undermine their self-esteem, and can be detrimental to their relationships with friends and family. Yet, despite the influence that the disorder can have through to adulthood, it remains widely misunderstood; the symptoms of its influence, which could lead to an all-important early diagnosis, are often missed. This brilliant interactive course is designed to provide delegates with an understanding of ADHD and the ways in which it impacts on the lives of young people.
