Working with ADHD in Children and Adolescents

In this course, the symptoms, causes, and risk factors of ADHD are explained, along with the neuroscience that makes an ADHD brain different from a neurotypical one. You learn about the importance of early diagnosis, ADHD comorbidities, and the therapies that are most helpful.

About this course

In this course, you will read about the symptoms of both the inattentive type and the hyperactive-impulsive type of ADHD, with some young people exhibiting symptoms from both sets. Not all causes and risk factors for ADHD are known, but you learn about what is known so far, and also see how the condition manifests as pairs of characteristics which are often contradictory to one another. From a neuroscience perspective, you explore the main brain regions where a neurodiverse brain with ADHD differs from a neurotypical one. You read about the importance of early diagnosis and find out about the many comorbidities commonly associated with ADHD. “Best practice” guidelines for ADHD for Australia, the U.S., Canada, and Europe are outlined, and a full chapter is devoted to explaining which therapeutic approaches work well for children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD, and why.
