"ADHD Right to Learn" Advocacy Campaign
Elected officials believe that their constituents do not care about ADHD and therefore question why they should care. We need to prove them wrong! An e-mail or tweet from you will let them know that you, their constituent, want children with ADHD to receive the special education support they need. Here’s what your elected official needs to know!

CADDAC needs you to take two minutes to send an e-mail or tweet to your elected official and Minister of Education. Our online ADHD Right to Learn advocacy system makes it easy and quick for you.
