ADHD Advocacy

One of our primary goals is advocating for individuals with ADHD. However doing so on an individual basis across Canada is not only impossible, but unproductive when looking at the bigger picture. “How can this be?” you might ask. Helping an individual child obtain the accommodations they require in the school system in order to be successful, or helping an adult on benefits obtain the appropriate medication should be considered the ultimate goal – we agree. However, accomplishing this as the system stands is often time consuming and ultimately impossible. For this reason, we believe that CADDAC can be most effective in providing information on individual advocacy, while systemically advocating for change on ADHD issues at the same time.
