Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Welcome to Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), an interactive distance learning course designed to help you achieve a better understanding of ADHD and provide intervention strategies to facilitate positive student change. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder provides information on the history of the disorder, accepted methods to assess and identify students with the disorder, and various treatment methods that are currently being used to treat the disorder. The course helps you through the referral process when you feel a student needs services beyond what you are capable of or comfortable providing in your classroom environment. This course also lists resources for both teachers and parents who would like more help or information about ADHD.
ADDITIONAL NOTES: All VESi courses receive letter grades. Grading information can be found in your Course Syllabus Addendum. All VESi courses are tablet compatible!
There is a two week minimum for course completion. For your maximum time, Ashland's academic calendar is September 1st through August 31st each year and you are required to complete your course within that academic calendar. Also, please be certain to refer to the attachments that are sent with your course link(s) as those items contain important information regarding exam score and essay requirements.
