Education in the POP methods
The target population for these courses are parents and others working or dealing with hyperactive children. This course is also beneficial to people dealing with inattentive children. The children do not need to be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
These courses are offered to give parents and others insight into children with hyperactive behaviours. The courses give samples of methods to deal effectively with these children both hyperactive and inattentive. This means no butting heads and methods to give these children a chance to feel normal and thereby behaving in a calm and cooperative manner. Family School POP (Preschool-Overactivity Program) is based on a research-based program used in Finland for the past 35 years.
The aim of the course is:
- Increase the positive interaction between child and adult/peers.
- Decrease future behavioural difficulties
- Offer parents and others new methods to parent and deal with these children
- Increase the child's positive behaviours
- Increase the child's ability to reach success
- Allow the children a positive experience in a safe environment (3-6 year olds)
