HADD's mission is to make life better for people affected by ADHD

Reading is one of the most crucial activities for children, promoting language development, building knowledge, and setting up academic success – but getting children with ADHD to read can be tough. ADHD makes reading more difficult, since reading relies on attention and executive function. Quality instruction is only part of the solution, because reading with ease and comprehension only follows from consistent practice. Since kids often avoid doing things that feel difficult, the children who need reading practice most, don’t do it.

Children with ADHD are much more likely than other kids to struggle getting to sleep, and staying asleep. Up to 73% of Australian parents report their child with ADHD has problems sleeping.

Why are children with ADHD more likely to have sleep problems?
