Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has seen a huge rise in the last 20 years. Whether this is to do with an original misdiagnosis of the condition, or a changing in society, it is unknown. However, it does present very specific challenges for practitioners in an early years setting. ADHD is often first recognised in an Early Years setting and early years practitioners frequently have to deal with the referral and diagnosis process.

This course will look at what exactly active learning is and how it relates to the wider EYFS. It will help you learn how to support active learning in your setting and how you can observe the children to assess this.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To increase your awareness of the needs of those who have an ADHD Diagnosis
  2. To understand the Triad of Impairments

  4. To improve your understanding and skills to meet the needs of those in your care

This course will ensure your practice is in line with the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, The Early Years Framework and The Foundation Phase. It will also support your continuous professional development in line with the Early Years Teachers Standards.
