So often, people misunderstand ADHD and judge the behaviour of those with the disorder. Yes, according to CADDRA, ADHD is a disorder and needs to be acknowledged as one! Watch this fun video by a young adult with ADHD and how she describes what it is like!
Often I hear educators and other people say “They don’t look like they have ADHD”….well it might be that you just don’t understand truly what ADHD is! According to the CDC parent survey, almost 10% of children in the United States are diagnosed with ADHD. CADDRA estimates that this number was between 5-9% in Canada in 2018.
