CADDAC – Canadian ADHD AdvocacyBy
This week, the Centre for ADD/ADHD Advocacy Canada is promoting an awareness campaign for ADD and ADHD in Canada.
The goal is to increase awareness of ADD and ADHD in Canada, and help to advocate for appropriate services.
In most Canadian provinces, the school boards do not recognize ADD/ADHD as a disorder which will allow for special educational services or educational acommodations. To get these, a student must meet criteria for a learning disability, or a behavior disorder.
