New Ontario Ministry of Education Memorandum
A new Ministry memorandum to school boards states that students with ADHD who have learning-based needs should be identified as exceptional students, and can be recognized under a variety of categories. The memorandum goes several steps further and states that children can be categorized in the Communication (learning disability) category regardless of whether criteria for a learning disability are met. The memorandum outlines areas in which students with ADHD may demonstrate learning needs, but clarifies that needs are not limited to this list. CADDAC congratulates the Ministry for this first step in correcting a long-standing inequity of access to special education services for students with ADHD and other neurobiological disorders.
