Specialist teaching of ADHD supports the personal and academic development of children and young people with ADHD through addressing and identifying needs. Specialist teaching of ADHD aims to provide children and young people with strategies to increase their attention whilst aiming to reduce avoidable external distractions.
People with ADHD require integrated care that addresses a wide range of personal, social, educational and occupational needs. Care should be provided by adequately trained healthcare and education professionals.
When a child or young person with disordered conduct and suspected ADHD is referred to a school's special educational needs coordinator (SENCO), the SENCO, in addition to helping the child with their behaviour, should inform the parents about local parent-training/education programmes.
ADHD differs from the normal spectrum because there are high levels of hyperactivity / impulsivity and/or inattention that result in significant psychological, social and/or educational or occupational impairment that occurs across multiple domains and settings and persists over time.
Drug treatment for children and young people with ADHD should always form part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes psychological, behavioural and educational advice and interventions.
