Campaign: To change negative stereotypes of people with ADHD

I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) when I was three-years-old.

 

It’s a condition which can cause me to become over-excited and lose concentration easily.

 

Although the medication I take does calm me down, I was often perceived as the naughty child at school.

 

Most people didn’t understand that I wasn’t doing it on purpose.

 

I’m working with Fixers to raise more awareness of ADHD and change people’s negative misconceptions of the condition.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Christopher Maguire

Erin Crangle

Ethan McCusker

Jamie Hill

Mary Lockett

Thomas McDonald
