When a student excels in her studies, is sociable, and well-behaved in class, we typically determine that child doesn’t need any additional support. But Madison’s mother, Catherine, noticed her daughter struggled with basic organization, time management, following directions, and remembering things. Her familiarity with ADHD symptoms based on her former career as a school psychologist, put her on a path of getting a diagnosis and help for Madison.
Today, Madison is a pro ad advocating for herself and though she may keep a messy desk, she doesn’t feel ashamed. Listen as she shares what life is like for her in school and why she is proud of who she is.
