About the Course

This course will provide an overview of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Course participants can expect to learn about ADHD as a developmental disorder that begins early in childhood, and participants will also learn about evidence-based approaches for diagnosing ADHD. Following that, two evidence-based treatment approaches (the Daily Report Card and Parenting Strategies) will be introduced. (Note these course activities are informational and are not intended to replace working with a licensed/trained professional). Learning Objectives: Students will be able to identify the behaviors characteristic of ADHD, the components of a diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment procedures that can be used in the school or home. 1. Identify the key areas of functional impairment, symptom presentation, and diagnostic decision-making for youth with ADHD. 2. Develop a behavioral intervention suitable for treating ADHD in the school setting. 3. Apply effective parenting and teaching strategies for supporting youth with ADHD in the home, classroom, and neighborhood....

Very easy to follow and informative course. Learned some things that I didn't know even though I have two children with ADHD. Would definitely recommend to parents who are wondering what they can do.

I didn't think that using bribes was a good system, even if effective. The presenter was wonderful and spoke quickly and clearly.

This is a great concise course on understanding ADHD, its diagnosis and assessment, and useful non-technical strategies to help children, parents and teachers. In terms of potential interventions, there was emphasis on both home and school settings - the typical locations where addressing ADHD matters most. As expected from the course title, this offering does not cover pediatric-specialist topics such as pharmacologic management. The material is highly recommended for both laypeople and clinical professionals.

I learned many different strategies on how do deal with a child who has ADHD or borderline ADHD. This course is great, Sometimes we as adults don't understand what is going on with the childrens and get frustrated as well as them. This course gives you several way too help with some behavioral issues. It also recommends how the parents/ teacher can work together in achieving a more suitable learning experience for the children and everyone involved with there education. Again thank you...

I have been working with Elementary level student for about 10 years as a curriculum specialist. This course is a great experience for me. This gives me new insight over diverse elementary school learners. Course materials are well organized and very suitable for any level learners. It's very essential for all the practitioners engaged in Elementary education, I think. Deep gratitude and regards to the course designers and service providers.

Thanks a lot.

This course has indeed been very practical. It gave me access to useful tools for diagnosis. It helped me understand how a diagnosis can be made. It also helped me understand strategies that are empirically driven to deal with children with ADHD on a day to day basis. Professor Gregory is simply clear and to the point and is amazing at delivering concepts! Thank you Sir, it was a pleasure to have this learning experience with you..!!

As a parent of a very ADHD child and a teacher, this course really made me understand my child's stumbling blocks and that I was one of his stumbling blocks. My wife and I have implemented so many of these ideas and can see a glimmer of hope. I am also looking forward to implementing some of these ideas in my classroom. Yes these strategies are for elementary students but I am going to implement them in my highschool class

I am a grandparent. Our daughter is a single parent with twin 5 year old girls, one of them has ADHD and needs structure and help. This course has given me great ideas and sources to offer help to our daughter as she often very worn out but is an excellent parent. Without her, he daughter is off of the rails. This is a very helpful course and I thank you for making it available.

A simple yet concise and clear summary of how to recognize a child with ADHD as well as what to do once you have identified that you are blessed with this challenge in your classroom. Highly recommended for both parents and teachers.

The strategies discussed in this course are excellent as general teaching and parenting strategies as well.

Very useful! I would suggest this course for parents and school staff alike. It is truly is empowering as a parent to be able to speak the same lingo as the school and work as a cohesive team rather than feeling like I am being talked around. Having this class under my belt allowed me to be a better advocate for my child.

This course was very informative; it helped me understand the challenges my child faces as well as the positive strategies to support her growth and managing her ADHD behaviors. The instructor provides specific action steps that can be used immediately to improve the life of a child struggling with ADHD and their family.

I had a good experience with the course in its totality. Something that stuck out to me the most is how a lot of the resources and strategies presented can be put into use right away. I believe this practical touch is important to build a clear path between the learning experience and the everyday use of this knowledge.

The resource materials given are very useful. Both teachers and parents will benefit from this course. A lot of practical solutions are proposed and they all could start to practice at hand. I find it difficult to follow the lecture because of its speed. If Professor could talk a little bit slower, that will be great.

Thank you for offering this course! I have learned a lot about how to manage my son's ADHD in a productive way, instead of just dishing out punishments and administering medication. I now feel empowered to help him to make positive changes that will improve his interactions with both adults and peers.

Useful and realistic strategies for educators and parents to nature children with ADHD.

Guideline by the instructor, Mr. Fabiano is clear and concise and ready to apply at home and school. His positive reinforcement and manageable practice such as Daily Deport Card are great takeaway.

As a parent to a child with ADHD and working in education this has been a fanatastic course. It has given me resources, strategies and a far better understanding of this disorder than I have previously had. I'm actually excited to implement many strategies in my home.

Thank you.

Gosh, I learned a wealth of solid information. Very thought-provoking course but one that eased my anxieties all at that same time. Great experience taking this class. One that undoubtedly enables you as a learner to implement what you've learned in the real world.
