Qualification Number: 601/5595/2

Our Level 3 Award in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Awareness is ideally suited to individuals wanting to improve their understanding of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for professional development.

Why we offer this qualification

Our aim at Different Minds UK is to provide those with ADHD every opportunity to reach their full potential. One way we do this is to provide in-depth awareness of what ADHD is and how it affects the mind. It will be particularly relevant for professionals or individuals currently either working with or supporting individuals and families affected by ADHD, or for individuals who would like to start a career supporting those with ADHD. Following successful completion of this course, professionals working in an educational setting can progress onto the ADHD in Education Level 3 which provides more practical-based learning on how to support learners with ADHD.

Raising awareness of neurodiversity is crucial within society. What makes a good professional is one that can empathise and listen but those that truly understand what’s going on in the mind of their clients/students, enabling growth and empowering their clients/students are exceptional professionals.
