Dealing with AD(H)D in the Classroom: Competence Framework and Curriculum for Initial and In-Service Training
Among the mental disorders of childhood and adolescence, Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D) takes a prominent position with its relative frequency – the worldwide prevalence is 3 – 5%.
Over the past decades, a considerable body of knowledge about AD(H)D and supportive measures for school and teaching has accumulated in the scientific and professional community.
The aim of the Teaching AD(H)D Children (TAC) project is to incorporate this knowledge into a comprehensive training and further education programme for teachers at primary and secondary level. TAC now presents a competence framework with a description of a curriculum.
