Webinar Duration: 48 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders, mental health leads, SENCOs, teachers and practitioners with an introductory overview of ADHD, including causes, symptoms and diagnosis, and practical guidance on supporting pupils with ADHD to promote wellbeing, engagement and achievement.
ADHD is the most common behavioural disorder in children with a high rate of comorbidity with other conditions. It may affect pupils’ ability to cope with everyday activities, impacting mental health, academic attainment and social interactions. Statistics indicate that in 65% of cases, difficulties persist into adulthood.
In this webinar, Karen Pilling, SEND expert and acting deputy headteacher with an extensive background leading on SEND training in schools, provides insight into ADHD, explaining the challenges that pupils with the condition face in their day-to-day lives and how they can be supported at primary level to improve outcomes.
