“I have learned SO MUCH on this programme, not only because of its valuable content, but also due to Hilary’s phenomenal delivery of the training. I’ll be recommending movements breaks right across the college”
Sarah Revell, Level 3 ADHD, Boston College
“It really helped me to think about learners with ADHD/traits and consequential barriers to learning. I found it especially thought-provoking to look at environments and how to manage distractions”
Xaviera Bodlein, Thurnham Infant School
“It was all beneficial but I enjoyed the tasks and audit – to allow us to think about it from somebody with ADHD’s point of view. It gave us the opportunity to consider our practice and possible effective strategies.”
Emily Payne, Belmont Primary School
“This was really useful training for me – particularly behavioural strategies – as I work with a difficult student who is largely taught on his own.”

  • Excellent! Clearly presented. Excellent course materials with practical ideas and resources which may be adapted. We look forward to implementing the 6 week programme which is highly relevant to the students we work with. This has left me with skills which may be used tomorrow and a programme to develop and implement in the future. Diolch!
