About

Are you the parent, teacher, or carer of a child who fidgets a lot? Always loses things? Is constantly on the go? Cannot pay attention? It’s frustrating, but it may be a sign of ADHD. The important thing is to recognize the signals so you can get help. After all, you’re not alone. About 11% of children aged 4-17 years (that’s 6.4 million youngsters) have been diagnosed with ADHD in the US, and with the mental health difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic, these numbers are growing in both children and adults.

Our expert, Dr. Dawn Ferrara, has worked with children and adults with ADHD for over 20 years. Her acute understanding of this complex subject allows her to break down the information into easily understood modules. Throughout this course you will learn what ADHD is and different ways to live with it, including treatments and classroom strategies, family relationships, and living with ADHD as an adult.

Once you recognize why you or someone with ADHD behaves in a certain way, you are better equipped to understand and help them thrive. Start ADHD Awareness today.
