Who is ADHD Mastery for?
ADHD Mastery is designed for anyone who works with ADHD pupils in an educational setting. It includes practical classroom strategies that will support students in both primary and secondary schools.
Although it's primarily intended for teaching staff (teachers, TAs, learning mentors etc.), anyone who comes into contact with children in your school will find benefit from the training.
Is this relevant to my school?
ADHD is thought to affect 11% of school-age children, making it the most common brain-based development disorder in schools. That makes it relevant to all schools.
Do I need to know a lot about ADHD to run the training?
No. I'll guide your staff through all the strategies in a step-by-step fashion. You don't need any prior knowledge about ADHD.
Is this as good as having you train my teaching staff in person?
Not quite - for a start, you can't ask me questions.
But with ADHD Mastery, you pay once and get lifetime access to the material, so you can re-use it as often as you want. If you wanted me to train your staff in person, it would cost £279 (ex-VAT) for every single visit.
Will using these strategies completely eliminate challenging behaviour from all my ADHD students?
No - every student is different. However, if your staff follow the strategies consistently, you'll know they're putting in place provision that targets the underlying needs driving your pupils' difficulties.
What handouts are included for my teaching staff?
I provide strategy booklets, covering key points from the training, and attendance certificates for your attendees. You will need to print these out before the training starts.
How does the training work?
It's a series of training videos, interspersed with group tasks.
I'll explain clearly what each task involves, and even include a timer so your staff know how much time they have left.
As facilitator, you'll occasionally be asked to record answers from the group on flipchart paper.
How do I get ready for the training?
Included in the training is a facilitator's handbook. It's a step-by-step checklist of what you need to get ready for the training.
It even includes a sign-in sheet, so you can record who attended the training.
Do I need to be technically minded to run the training?
No. If you can play an internet video with sound on a projector or interactive whiteboard, you have all the technical skills you need.
