Helping Students with ADHD

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is said to be the most common mental health condition in childhood, yet advocates argue there is still a lack of awareness surrounding the neurodevelopmental disorder, much to the detriment of students. Joining The Agenda to explain are Dr. Ainslie Gray of the Springboard Clinic, Heidi Bernhardt of the Centre for ADHD Awareness Canada, and Waterloo Region public school trustee Natalie Waddell.
