The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that up to 11% of children ages 4 to 17 have attention-deficit disorder or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). That means one out of 10 of your students could be diagnosed with an attention disorder! More than 90% of these students will have serious academic or social struggles at some point in their academic careers. How can you help these students succeed while balancing the needs of your other students? 

In this course, you will learn to identify the characteristics of ADHD and its impact on children. You’ll develop specific intervention and support strategies to help these students cope with stress, manage their emotions, and navigate academic and social challenges. Although teaching children with ADHD poses unique challenges, you’ll learn to cultivate a healthy mindset for working with these students without getting overwhelmed.

By the end of this course, you will be equipped with a robust set of best practices for helping students with ADHD manage their behavior, improve their social skills, and succeed academically.
