Course Overview

Individuals with ADHD and ASD exhibit challenging behaviour, and may not manage well in various settings due to ineffective communication and interaction. As educators and caregivers, it is important that we understand these individuals better to interact and communicate with them more effectively and prevent any frustrations that may trigger meltdowns. This course equips you with a comprehensive set of knowledge and skills to engage individuals with ADHD and ASD more effectively in mainstream settings – from identifying common traits and characteristics to implementing evidence-based intervention strategies. These skills are applicable in many contexts including personal, organizational and after-school care settings.
