Understand the Biological Underpinnings of Autism and ADHD
During this course we are looking to demystify ADHD and ASD. We get to grips with the neurobiological underpinnings of each condition and learn where there is commonality and difference both in the biology and also in the behaviours we might observe.
We go on to explore what SEMH is and isn’t and how it links to SEND before taking a step away from the labels, diagnoses and neuroscience to remember that we’re here to talk about living, breathing little people.
A version of this course was originally part of an online SENDCo training event commissioned by the Girls Day School Trust in the UK.
