This course explores symptoms and demonstrates different methods of coping with challenges that occur with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We also look at the effects of medication and explore the three key areas that affect people with ADHD. We focus on managing emotions, getting more organised and developing different ideas about how you can manage the patterns of behaviour that cause distress; and we also consider other support resources available.
