ADHD has been diagnosed and is medicated, although medictaion is not taken religously and often results in relapsing.
Current assessment by the respondent:
This young person displays signs of positivity towards sessions that he can link an outcome too, eg, physical/practical sessions that he can link to sports and coaching. Based on this principle, I've found it imperative to link all academic/planning/study sessions to how this will benefit his employment aims/qualifications needed. Learning styles questionnaire link him to an 'Audio and Kinaesthetic learner' - this learning was during a tutorial session to ensure he understood how this would or could affect his learning. During project work, work is completed well but social interaction is limited unless prompted through direct questioning.
This young person is 4 months into a course and is still currently engaging, good early use of pastoral care has allowed him to gain trust and belief in education. Attendance is still a little sporadic, although, sessions completed are positive and he demonstrates good use of questionning during group discussions. Confidence within the group has improved and he can give clear examples of what he sees his own personal quailities to be.
