TOPIC: ADHD & Navigating School Life
DESCRIPTION: ADHD is one of the most common mental disorders in children and youth. It affects the way people act and interact with the world around them. ADHD is usually only diagnosed after young children start school, when challenges such as paying attention, and restlessness become more apparent. In this Pinwheel we will learn about strategies for navigating the school experience while living with ADHD.
