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.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for participants with little or no background knowledge in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) as well as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is catered for individuals who want to be equipped with a full set of basic skills and relevant knowledge to better engage with individuals with ADHD and/or ASD in the mainstream settings. 

What You'll Learn

Participants will be given an overview of the 2 types of special needs (Autism Spectrum Disorder & ADHD) that will include the causes and some common traits and characteristics. They will also discuss on the issues and trends that revolve around the special needs sector. Some evidence based strategies and educational responses that are commonly implemented in the special education settings will be introduced to aid participants in engaging and managing individuals with autism and/or ADHD more effectively.
