The University of Derby has designed a free online short course to help raise awareness and encourage communication and education about these complex conditions. The course is also endorsed by the ADHD Foundation, is free and widely available for anyone to take part in regardless of age, location or education status, but spaces are limited.
‘ADHD is one of the most common childhood conditions that can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. ADHD is thought to affect between 3-9% of school age children and young people in the UK (NICE, 2013).
Likewise, around 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by autism in the UK alone (National Autism Society, 2016).
The exact cause of both autism and ADHD is poorly understood, and there is currently no known cure although much can be done to support people with these conditions.’
