Description

There are many reasons why children in situations of vulnerability often have difficulties with attention and exhibit behaviours deemed difficult or problematic. In order to properly help such children, it is important to distinguish between more transient problems and those caused by actual neurological deficits. This module begins by examining the causes and signs of ADHD and behavioural disorders. Possible comorbidities that can accompany these disorders are also covered. Finally, case studies are used to examine the interventions favoured by CSP for children with these disorders.

Objectives


  • Recognize and identify the signs of ADHD and behavioural disorders
  • Describe the comorbidities that can accompany these disorders
  • Recognize the biological and environmental sources of these disorders for children in situations of vulnerability
  • Understand the levers used in CSP to help children with these disorders
