    As a man raising global awareness for the many things misdiagnosed as ADHD in society (my own personal story included), I have worked with a prominent, cutting-edge Optometrist (PhD) by the name of Dr. Patrick Quaid (Ontario, Canada). Many kids with concussions & vision issues are misdiagnosed with ADHD, so we must be incredibly careful to ALWAYS treat ADHD as a last-resort diagnosis, ruling many other things out first. Over 50 things mimic ADHD symptoms but are in fact not ADHD. Awareness is critical here.

    Thank you.
