Description

In a 2015 survey, one half of children in preschool were on medication for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). People with ADHD tend to be visionaries, dreamers, explorers, inventors, and trend setters. In this course, we will explore ADHD as a disorder that can negatively affect a child’s life, and as a trait that may be beneficial in helping a child grow into a successful adult. This course is designed to be part of a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™ curriculum and covers CDA Subject Area 8, Understanding Principles of Child Development and Learning. This course can also be taken as a stand-alone learning event or as part of a broader early childhood education curriculum.
