CADDAC is undertaking a Canadian national ADHD survey and we would appreciate if you could pass the link onto anyone you think may be interested. The surveys are posted on our CADDAC website on the homepage: http://www.caddac.ca.
CADDAC is utilizing social media! You can find us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/CADDAC and on Twitter as @CentreforADHD. We have also launched this blog to better promote ADHD awareness, decrease the stigma that persists in surrounding ADHD, and to connect and network with individuals affected by ADHD and ADHD organizations.
CADDAC would like to announce the launch of two fall initiatives. The first of these two initiatives is a campaign addressing the stress experienced by parents of children with ADHD in elementary and secondary school during this hectic back-to-school time. The second is a campaign to build awareness of ADHD at the post-secondary level.
The “Back on Track” back-to-school with ADHD campaign for elementary and high school students was preceded by a short survey asking parents of ADHD children what potential stresses they felt beginning a new school year. Posted on the homepage of the CADDAC website, you will find (in English and in French):
- The results of the “Back on Track” back-to-school with ADHD survey.
- Press release August 31, 2011

The College and University ADHD Awareness Campaign will be launched September 6th 2011. Information to follow, please stay tuned!
