Attention Deficit Disorder

This course will help you achieve a better understanding of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and intervention strategies to facilitate positive student change. This course covers the history of the disorder, accepted methods of assessing and identifying students with the disorder, and various methods, medications, and strategies that currently are used to treat the disorder. And for situations in which a student needs services beyond what you can provide in the classroom, you will learn about the referral process for getting help for the student. Reference materials include a list of resources for both teachers and parents who would like more help or information about ADD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Ideal for elementary and middle school instructors.
