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

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

Helpless, 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. 

No student should endure years of harassment and bullying modelled by teachers like Daniel has. The toxic effects of his early school years poisoned every one of his friendships. Instead of care, Daniel was excluded over and over because of his ADHD.
