Very informative and interesting to read
Very informative and interesting to read. Having it broken down into very manageable sections makes it easy to absorb your new found knowledge.

The course was very well structured and easy to navigate.
I have just completed the ADHD Diploma.
I found the course extremely interesting and informative, especially for parents with children who have ADHD or people who work with children with the condition. It has changed my perspective on the condition a lot. I have therefore recommended this course to others.
The course was very well structured and easy to navigate. The wording used was simple to understand yet effective. The test was multiple choice which I liked and you are able to access your certificate straight after successful completion of the test which I thought was great.
I will definitely be purchasing another course from New Skills Academy.
Melissa Birch – Exeter
New Skills Academy have given me the confidence to achieve my goals
The course was the best thing I’ve done to date. As a single mum of three children, one of which has ADHD, I haven’t had the time or motivation to further my education. I was never academic at school, but New Skills Academy have given me the confidence to achieve my goals.
The course can be done at your own pace, which is great for all. Each module can be printed off, making it easier. I was quite nervous about the final test but so pleased and proud I passed. I can now use my knowledge to support my son as well as use it to raise awareness of the condition.
I have recently become a volunteer for the National Autistic Society, this diploma has opened many doors of opportunity in the work place. I highly recommend this course for all parents with children that have ADHD but also families and teachers. I have already got my Branch manager and friend signed up to the course, and I’m spreading the word.

I really liked this course
Previously, I had a very small idea of this diagnosis. But when I started working with children with ADHD, I realised that I needed to learn more. That is why I decided to learn from this course.
I got a lot of knowledge and expanded my understanding of this diagnosis. I understood how to work with children who have this diagnosis. Based on this course, I developed a strategy of behaviour and understood how to respond in certain situations.
I understand how I can be more effective at work and how to help my students. I really liked this course. Thank you.
