ADHD: Specialist tutors in London & Surrey

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be categorised as either inattentiveness or as hyperactivity and impulsiveness, although it is often the case that a student with ADHD may experience both these forms. With inattentiveness the student can still be quiet in class and it may go unnoticed for many years.

Signs of inattentiveness:

Signs of hyperactivity and impulsiveness:

ADHD is often accompanied by other special needs (e.g. dyslexia and anxiety). It is a developmental disorder, so it does not appear in adults without first appearing during childhood. With age, hyperactivity tends to decrease but inattentiveness can remain, causing some tasks during adulthood to be challenging.

Our tutors are provided with guidance and training to help them when providing tuition to students with special educational needs, including those with ADHD.
