You are most certainly not alone. Graduate and experienced educators alike are telling us how with increasing frequency that they feel overwhelmed and under supported.
This does not need to be you!
We understand exactly what this feels like. We have worked with children who have an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity diagnosis, or who present with similar behaviours. We have a keen interest in, and understanding of the developing neuro diverse brain. We have used this knowledge to develop a toolbox of strategies and techniques that work in the Early Childhood classroom or setting, and are easy to implement. We understand the different ways these children interact with others and learn, and we have successfully engaged them in our classes, and seen them flourish in their learning and with their peers. We know the amazing and unique skill set a focused child with ADHD / ADD can bring to your learning environment.
If we can understand, manage and successfully support the child/ren with behaviours that require support and intervention, we know you can too.
In this course you will:
- Understand the developing neurodiverse brain and the constraints and strengths for the student, including ADHD and ADD
- Examine what is a developmentally appropriate behaviour and behaviours that require support and intervention
- Learn and explore specific strategies, techniques and techniques to support the child with challenging behaviours / ADHD / ADD, while preserving and promoting self worth
- Develop appropriate play based activities to support students with ADHD / ADD within your classroom
- Explore the range of strategies you can use to support families to ensure a consistent approach for the child
Not only that, you will also
- Discuss the range of challenges faced by these children and their families, and develop a plan to provide an inclusive, engaging and supportive classroom for them
- Meet and network with other colleagues and discuss and share professional knowledge and expertise.
This course is designed for Early Childhood educators and leaders who may have a child(s) with challenging behaviours / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD / ADD), or present with similar behaviours. Course materials and content have been developed with this audience in mind. Colleagues from other sectors are welcome to attend this course if they want to develop a skill set in a different context.
