Teaching and supporting children with ADHD and related conditions
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a condition characterised by symptoms of extreme inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. It is estimated to affect between 5 to 7% children and young people and it is associated with a range of learning, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. The effects of unrecognised ADHD can be disastrous for individuals and as a result early intervention and proactive management systems are the key elements in helping children to be successful in school
