SOLVE THIS WICKED PROBLEM:
8 million kids in US with ADHD (200 Million people with intellectual disabilities globally)
ADHD correlates highly with other diagnoses e.g: depression, anxiety, SPD, ODD, etc.
About 2/3s of caregivers/parents struggle to help their child
99% of general education teachers don’t know how to help
50% of pediatricians fully admit to not knowing how to help kids with ADHD specifically
Divorce rates are twice as high for parents of kids with ADHD as for parents of neurotypical kids
Kids don’t get well educated, struggle with college and debt
Then struggle with getting and maintaining a job
