Who is this course for?
We’ve designed this course for teachers, tutors, school leaders and those working in health services. As components of the course focus on student assessment, goal setting and program planning, interested Education Support staff (aides) should discuss this with a teacher from their school as it is best practice for teachers and ES to collaborate on these parts of the course. We have also published a short course for parents of children with ADHD who are looking for more support and information.
