Event description
In this session, Katie Pitman ( Educational Psychologist), will give a presentation on what ADHD is.

Would you like to know more about supporting children with attention difficulties including ADHD?

If so, please join our session run by the South Glos Educational Psychology Service. The session aims to give you a wider knowledge of ADHD and attention-related difficulties, how a deficit in executive functioning fits into the bracket of ADHD, and which children are more likely to have these types of difficulties and why.

We hope for you to come away with strategies to help a child cope with attention difficulties, to help you manage and support a child with these difficulties and to minimise the knock-on effects on family life. We also aim for you to have a wider understanding of the difficulties the child may be experiencing at school, and educate you on school support.’

 
This session is broken into 3 parts with a break between each section; each part will  be around  50 minutes long and will include include activities.

I would strongly recommend that you use a laptop or computer to access this training.  Tablets and phones have a very limited functionality ( ie videos, if used, cannot always be heard/viewed easily) and as a result, use of a computer/laptop will result in a much more enjoyable and engaging learning experience for you.
