For whom is this module intended?
The module was developed for young people between the ages of 15 and 18 who suffer from one of the three forms of ADHD: hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating, or a combination of both.
What is the content of this module?
This module for young people with ADHD offers tools to help them focus their attention for longer, to learn to plan and organise, but also to deal with people who do not understand ADHD well. Research is also carried out into the young person's strong points.
This module begins with a focus on the strengths of a young person with ADHD and how those strengths can best be utilised. After that, tools are offered to deal with a lack of attention, not being able to plan and organise optimally and to deal with people who do not understand ADHD well. Ultimately, the young person can set a goal for themselves which is worked towards step by step.
The use of medicines is only briefly mentioned in this module so that the practitioner can discuss this in more detail with the young person.
This is module is mobile compatible and can be used via the Minddistrict app or web platform.
What is this module based on?
