This highly commended training is delivered by our experienced trainers and facilitators, parents of ADHD individuals and most importantly, ADHD people themselves. It truly empowers all those who participate to get their voices heard.

Our training will provide:

A theoretical understanding of ADHD providing knowledge about the characteristics and diagnostic criteria. We will look at how these differences are expressed: creativity, challenging behaviour, impulsivity, communication difficulties, social issues, mental health experiences, executive function challenges, aptitudes and skills.

We will also briefly explore parenting ADHD children giving a view of the parent's/carer experience.

Insight into the unique perspective of ADHD people through listening to a panel of adults, each with their own experience and story to share.

The panel will be followed by smaller discussion groups where you will have the opportunity to engage, explore and ask questions of our panellists to support you in developing your own practice in supporting individuals with ADHD.

Delegates will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course.

The “Empowering” project also provide tailor-made neurodiversity training (ADHD and/or autism) to meet the particular needs of your profession or workplace. Please contact CAAS for more information.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Please specify any dietary requirements upon booking.
