Executive Summary:

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) has become an increasingly common diagnosis in recent years and is one that can cause confusion and concern in parents and carers. They may already be 'at their wits end' in terms of responding to disruptive behaviour and can then be confronted with entrenched viewpoints about whether medical or psychosocial interventions are most effective – and even which ones are morally 'right'. Even from professionals.

This course therefore takes a dispassionate view of the nature of ADHD, the far reaching problems it can cause for carers. Most importantly though, it details what effective psychosocial interventions are available to benefit both young people involved and also those looking after them.

The course covers:

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.

Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.

Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.
