    I work as a teaching assistant in a secondary school (North West) and I have identified ADHD as an area that I would like to have a better understanding of. I was wondering if anyone could help me by recommending any courses/training session(s) they have been on to help with their understanding of ADHD?

    Thank you,

    There is a mountain of info on the net and quite recently the subject / validity of ADHD was a long thread on one of these forums - google is your friend ! I contributed to that so if it helps afterwards you have found and read then please get in touch . When we provided INSET a very long time ago we began by looking at ADHD v SEBD ( now SEMH ) - this may be a decent starting point for you . We also provided staff with guidance - what it is/ how to recognise / how to accommodate. Perhaps limit yourself to these two things . Students with complex needs often demand a repertoire of strategies. Good Luck

    Bradford College run a 3 hour session one evening (5-8pm) each year. Depending upon which part of the North West you live in that might be an option. Email d.rolls@bradfordcollege.ac.uk for details.
