Daniel's Journey
Daniel's Journey: Fighting for Dignity

Mired in helplessness, Daniel's mom noted signs of ADHD in her young son. Managing his impulsive behaviour and intense feelings strained their small family to the limits of love. 

Friends offered baseless advice; the family met stark and painful teacher bias every school year. The heartrending decision to pursue diagnosis wasn't a perfect solution - there was still that sinking feeling of defeat each time they arrived at the school to hear a long list of everything that Daniel had done wrong.
No student should endure years of harassment and bullying modelled by teachers like Daniel has. The toxic aftereffects of his primary years poisoned every one of his friendships. Instead of care, Daniel was ensnared in a culture of bullying that made him the helpless victim time and again.

CADDAC is honoured to share Daniel's Journey - an emotional story highlighting one family's struggles and triumphs on the path to dignity.
