The Educational Psychology Service is running training for all schools and their communities, this academic year (2023-24).
This free three-hour training session will look at ADHD, what it is as well as what it isn’t, explore differences (neurodiversity), and offer practical strategies and guidance to support children and young people with ADHD.
Training sessions will be run virtually, through Microsoft Teams. The date of the next session is Wednesday 8 November 2023 (1pm-4pm). Further dates can be found at Supporting Children and Young People with ADHD – Training (somerset.gov.uk)
Parent carers interested in attending should speak to their school first to make sure they are able to attend the training and for support with registration.
We are asking SENCOs and/or Head Teachers to help compile lists of attendees by talking with the following members of their school community:
- Teaching staff
- Parents and carers
- FIS Workers
- School nurses
- Other professionals working with your setting to support children and young people with ADHD.
More information can be found at Attendee Information for ADHD Training Session. A complete a list of attendees (using word document provided below), including the date of the training you wish to attend, should be emailed to: AutismADHDPreassessmentPathway@somerset.gov.uk
