The Economic and Social Impact of ADHD
On November the 3rd
2008, CADDAC held a full day conference on the social and economic impact of ADHD and invited decision makers from many sectors of government that are significantly affected by ADHD, such as: Education, Health, Child and Youth Services, Social Services, Justice, Transportation, and Labour. Members of the business community, social agencies, other organizations and MPPS were also invited. One hundred and fifty people attended that day and from the feedback we received they found the information presented a revelation about the cost we currently pay as a society in the loss of human potential, the loss in actual income and the added costs to a variety of sectors of government.To view the presentation by Dr. Margaret Weiss entitled “ The Economic Costs of ADHD” please click here to view the pdf document.
