Why is discrimination against #neurodiversity so rife?Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a complex neurobiological disorder which affects a person’s ability to exert age appropriate self-control. The disorder is associated with a broad range of neuropsychological deficits (both executive and non-executive) that arise from significant differences in neural anatomy and functional processing. These deficits tend to cause significant disability and can lead to poor social, academic, mental and physical health outcomes if they are not appropriately supported and scaffolded both at school and at home.

Punishing, excluding or suspending students with ADHD for symptoms of their disorder is unethical and discriminatory. These actions do not:

- make a student with ADHD feel valued, understood or supported

- bridge the gap between a students with ADHD's ability and the expectations placed upon them in the classroom (and therefore do not set a student with ADHD up for success or protect them from harm)

- help students with ADHD to develop self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion or foster in them the knowledge and skills they need to embrace their strengths and scaffold their challenges independently.

All students deserve to receive the teaching support and inclusive classroom accommodations they require to navigate school successfully, feel good about themselves, reach their full potential and thrive, including students with ADHD.
