National Online ADHD Survey (http://www.caddac.ca/cms/page.php?2)

CADDAC is launching the first ever Canadian Survey on ADHD asking parents, caregivers, and adults about their experiences with ADHD, the medical system, and the educational system. We are encouraging everyone to spend a few minutes filling in this survey online.

The information gathered will assist us to not only better understand the needs of families with ADHD across Canada, it will help us advocate to medical, education, and government systems in the future.

Please help us help those impacted by ADHD by filling out this questionnaire online and passing the link on to anyone else that you think might be interested.

That's how activism works. You find people who already agree with you and send them email.

Done. Who are these CADDAC people?

They're an Advocacy group for ADHD.

The Centre for ADHD Awareness Canada, is a national, umbrella organization providing leadership in education and advocacy for ADHD organizations and individuals across Canada. CADDAC is committed to increasing the understanding of ADHD, therefore decreasing the stigma of ADHD by providing up-to-date scientific information on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. As a national ADHD organization, CADDAC takes a leadership role in the advocacy of ADHD in all areas that affect people with ADHD, including education, health, support, employment, regulatory bodies and resources. CADDAC strives to network with government, professional organizations, health care providers, educators and all other stakeholders to improve the lives of people with ADHD.

CADDAC strongly believes that only when all ADHD support groups and individuals who are truly committed to the well-being of those with ADHD, come together with a uniform 'ask' will we have a hope of change occurring. An 'ask' is what we would be requesting from the government or other regulators of education and health systems. At this time there are many small, local organizations that offer excellent support for small pockets throughout Canada. Unfortunately, this still leaves many unserved areas. It is our hope that by creating this website and offering links to other excellent sites we will help to spread excellent information and offer some support to those in more remote areas affected by ADHD.

While many websites offer basic ADHD information on what ADHD is and how it is treated, we have tried to go a step further and offer information on how to advocate for your child in the school system and obtain possible accommodations. We have included a section for parents, discussing a range of emotions they may be feeling and offer specially geared information on ADHD for children and adolescents. We hope to grow the site into an easy to use location for information on ADHD, but we also want the site to be a place where issues and concerns can be shared. Parents with ADHD children already feel very isolated and that their voices are not heard. While we cannot hope to reach individuals with specific concerns, our aim is to network with all of you through your local groups.http://www.caddac.ca/cms/page.php?62
