Women with ADHD

We want to hear from you!

 

CADDAC is very interested in learning more about the experiences of girls and women with ADHD in Canada. We will be publishing a policy paper on the topic this fall and would like to include some Canadian survey data, as well as personal comments, to the existing research data. Comments will be anonymous, but will help to add depth to our paper.
