This October, during ADHD Awareness Month, CADDAC is launching our “ADHD in Education Awareness/Advocacy Campaign” to draw greater attention to the inequities students with ADHD face when accessing education across Canada.
Over the years CADDAC has spent a great deal of time with parents across Canada discussing their frustrations and concerns about this issue. Many parents complain that educators lack an understanding of ADHD, that many school systems and ministries of education do not recognize ADHD as a significant impairment to learning and that their children are not receiving equitable access to education. At the same time we have also heard stories about the positive difference a teacher or principal can make in a child’s life when they truly understand the impact ADHD has on a child’s learning and behaviour.
