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

The Dalai Lama once said: “If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”The world needs this more than ever now.

According to recent news articles by Newsweek and the New York Times, the students in detention at Robert W. Coleman Elementary School in Baltimore aren’t staring at chalkboards and walls during detention—they’re meditating and practicing yoga as part of an after-school program.

I remember when we first started to see signs of disorganization in our son, Michael. He struggled with organizing his schoolwork and finishing tests. He also found it hard to remember things.

The condition makes it difficult to concentrate and organize, but those with ADHD can still be high performers. The key is preparation.

I don’t want to jinx it, but I feel like we’ve had a pretty good couple weeks in terms of PR for ADHDers.

Very recently, journalist Yashar Ali posted a brilliant Twitter thread about ADHD that went viral. In the thread, Ali revealed his ADHD diagnosis and talked about how ADHD affects his life.

People aged between 12 and 20 arrested for "impulsive crimes" should receive mandatory testing for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, MPs have said. Something we should consider for Ireland. 

The All Party Parliamentary Group for ADHD say compulsory testing should also be introduced for anyone sent to jail.
