In 2012, CADDAC conducted a survey of parents with ADHD children. Participants were asked to define the stress levels experienced during the school year.
More than half of the Canadian parents surveyed were not satisfied with the help their child is received at school, nor the knowledge that teachers and principals are perceived to have about ADHD.
Long wait times for comprehensive assessments and treatments, as well as difficulty accessing information about the disorder, were also flagged to be of significant concern. The full survey can be viewed here:
