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).

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.
