Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This programme is QCF approved and accredited through OCN London

There are four Learning Outcomes:

Know what Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) means.

Understand the impact that ADHD has on a person.

Know how to modify the impact that ADHD has on learning.

Understand the key principles of positive behaviour management.

Participants will be required to complete learning webinars and structured reading, after which a portfolio of work will be assessed at Level 2 or Level 3.

Evidence underpinning this approach

A recent large scale study found that the formal labeling of children with ADHD and the communication of this label to teachers was associated with a reduction in attainment, but that teachers and students benefited from advice about how to manage ADHD-like behaviour in their classrooms.

(Tymms and Merrill 2004)



How users/participants can evaluate success

This is a fully accredited short course and participants will follow set learning outcomes.  Course materials and structured reading/webinars will need to be completed.  The final portfolio is marked and verified before accreditation takes place.
