Behavioural Disorders in Children
One of the most worrying situations for carers and educators is seeing that their children and students struggle to accept rules or that they exhibit problematic behaviours. These behaviours can vary in type and intensity, but they often interfere with the child’s quality of life and the lives of those who live or work with them because they hinder academic performance and affect day-to-day family life.
This course, Behavioural Disorders in Children, provides carers and educators with basic training in the field of childhood behavioural disorders. It offers theoretical and practical knowledge about how to intervene in different cases. The course pays special attention to the three most common disorders—Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder—in order to assist with early diagnosis, and it also covers the most effective Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques.
5 weeks (120 hours) from the 30th May 2018 – 4th July 2018.
100% online through our e-learning platform which you can access 24/7. There is no fixed learning rhythm and there are no set dates for the exams so you are free to work on the course and take the exams at your own pace. The only requirement is that you finish the course and pass the exams by the 4th of July.
Everything you will need to complete the course is available on the online platform. The course has 3 modules and the material is available in PDF format to download, study and print if you wish. Our material is dynamic and varied and includes audiovisual multimedia resources, links to complementary information, interesting facts, practical examples and research tools. You will have access to an online forum with a tutoring team at your disposal for any queries.
There is an exam at the end of each module (between 10 and 20 questions each) and you are given three attempts to pass. There is also a final exam (between 30 and 40 questions) which covers topics from the entire course and must be passed on the first attempt. All exam questions are multiple choice, true/false or matching.
Once you have successfully passed all the exams, your certificate will be sent automatically to the email address you used for registration within 10 working days of the official end date of the course.
