This course will provide an overview of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Course participants can expect to learn about ADHD as a developmental disorder that begins early in childhood, and participants will also learn about evidence-based approaches for diagnosing ADHD. Following that, two evidence-based treatment approaches (the Daily Report Card and Parenting Strategies) will be introduced. (Note these course activities are informational and are not intended to replace working with a licensed/trained professional).
Learning Objectives: Students will be able to identify the behaviors characteristic of ADHD, the components of a diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment procedures that can be used in the school or home.
1. Identify the key areas of functional impairment, symptom presentation, and diagnostic decision-making for youth with ADHD.
2. Develop a behavioral intervention suitable for treating ADHD in the school setting.
3. Apply effective parenting and teaching strategies for supporting youth with ADHD in the home, classroom, and neighborhood.

School-based treatment approaches and the Daily Report Card (DRC)
This module explores the uses of an effective school-based treatment, the Daily Report Card
This module presents a number of parenting strategies that are best practice for supporting youth with ADHD
This is a great concise course on understanding ADHD, its diagnosis and assessment, and useful non-technical strategies to help children, parents and teachers. In terms of potential interventions, there was emphasis on both home and school settings - the typical locations where addressing ADHD matters most. As expected from the course title, this offering does not cover pediatric-specialist topics such as pharmacologic management. The material is highly recommended for both laypeople and clinical professionals.
