About the Course

Attention is primary to all learning and communication. The prerequisite for effective learning is the ability to be inhibited, focused and attentive to details. However, this ability does not come naturally for learners with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They often struggle with formal and structured contexts and are often misunderstood for misbehaving. Drawing upon intervention frameworks, this 16-hour course familiarises participants with current ADHD research, helps them better appreciate the challenges faced by learners with ADHD, provides them with skills to effectively address challenging behaviour and prepares them to develop a holistic support plan for these learners.

Target audience includes parents, social workers, counsellors, school staff, mentoring programme coordinators, volunteer mentors and other practitioners who are involved in the support of children and youth with hyperactivity and attentional issues. This will in turn improve the quality of life of the neurodiverse children and youth, as well as their caregivers. The course will enable the target audience to more effectively manage the challenges and stress posed by the problem behaviours, as well as create an effective and conducive home and learning environment that allows the neurodiverse children and youth to thrive.

By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  1. Recommend various ways to identify and support an ADHD learner (A4) 
  2. Apply the Interactive Factors Framework (IFF) to understand how ADHD can be due to the interaction of biological, cognitive, and environmental factors (K4, K5, A4) 
  3. Analyse a problem behaviour with reference to ADHD characteristics and the Antecedent – Behavioural – Consequence (ABC) model (K2, K4, A2)
  4. Select and practise behavioural management approaches to address the behavioural needs of an ADHD learner (K1, K3, K4, A2)
  5. Suggest supplementary remedies, interventions or modifications to address the biological deficits and environmental risk factors associated with ADHD (K1, K3, K5, A1)
  6. Apply Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidelines to enhance environmental factors to help children with ADHD learn effectively (K6, A3, A4)

DAS Academy will be delivering this course with these modes of learning: Classroom, Synchronous & Asynchronous E-learning.

This course will only proceed with a minimum of 15 participants.
