Why is discrimination against #neurodiversity so rife?Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a complex neurobiological disorder which affects a person’s ability to exert age appropriate self-control. The disorder is associated with a broad range of neuropsychological deficits (both executive and non-executive) that arise from significant differences in neural anatomy and functional processing. These deficits tend to cause significant disability and can lead to poor social, academic, mental and physical health outcomes if they are not appropriately supported and scaffolded both at school and at home.

Punishing, excluding or suspending students with ADHD for symptoms of their disorder is unethical and discriminatory. These actions do not:

- make a student with ADHD feel valued, understood or supported

- bridge the gap between a students with ADHD's ability and the expectations placed upon them in the classroom (and therefore do not set a student with ADHD up for success or protect them from harm)

- help students with ADHD to develop self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion or foster in them the knowledge and skills they need to embrace their strengths and scaffold their challenges independently.

All students deserve to receive the teaching support and inclusive classroom accommodations they require to navigate school successfully, feel good about themselves, reach their full potential and thrive, including students with ADHD.

Ouch!
A powerful image. What do you see?

This is what I see:

Replace ‘I want a toy’ with ‘I want to belong’ or ‘I want to feel better’.
He doesn’t have the answers or the even know what the question is.
Nor does mum. She’s trying and feeling like she’s failing. But she isn’t. Keep up with the love mumma bear!For many children this isn’t ups and downs this is years and years, layers and layers of anxiety that don’t improve so as our children get older they just learn to hide it better..

It is shocking to hear teachers say that they have had ZERO training on any of the neurodiverse conditions.

Ignorance is not an excuse!
Lack of funding is not an excuse because it doesn’t have to be expensive!

I’m grateful for every school or individual teacher who has invested in #autism #ADHD #dyslexia #TICs #tourettes #DCD #dycalculia training.

Thank you!

Please tell your colleagues, school leaders, unions and anyone who will listen that it was time and money well spent. Please tell them that it reduces teacher stress, means you can meet needs and be more inclusive.

The good things about ADHD: ‘It’s my superpower’

And on Channel 5 News

Becoming ADHD WISE

With us you are in good hands... Jannine Harris MA PCGE, Founder of ADHD WISE is an MSc Psychology student at the University of Liverpool. Jannine is brutally honest and open about her life with ADHD and is passionate about ‘Promoting Positive Outcomes‘.

At last! We are pleased to say that ADHD is more widely understood and accepted than it has ever been before.  There are a growing number of us who are willing to talk openly and honestly about how ADHD impacts our lives – the good, the bad, and the ugly!

ADHD can affect anyone, and it’s okay.  We’re different, but we can and do function in society in our unique and bombastic way. We are often the most creative people you know and are often drawn to caring professions or careers where we can feel we make a difference.

If you, your child, a family member, a child in your class, an employee, your partner, have ADHD, they have had it since birth, and will always have it.  If you encourage them to accept themselves and be allowed to thrive, your time around them will be full of love and entertainment. Life around a thriving ADHD’er means never being bored or lonely.

ADHD Wise UK has been set up by adults who are diagnosed with ADHD themselves and use it to good effect.  We want to champion the possibilities, and ‘promote positive outcomes’ for those with ADHD. It’s a tough condition to live with at times.  There are some of us who barely manage to survive, let alone thrive.  We are here for them because merely surviving is never enough. We all deserve more than that.

There is a reason for everything and a host of potential solutions to every ADHD issue.  ADHD Wise UK is entirely ‘Solution Focussed’ and will always endeavour to help you to navigate the challenges ahead, and find a positive way forward.
