Welcome to the official webpage of The ADHDe Project!

The ADHDe Project is a student-led initiative that promotes inclusion and respect for university students who identify as neurodiverse. This project was created to destigmatize ADHD and neurodiversity on campus, provide students with resources and support, and promote a welcoming environment at the University of Windsor.

Funded by the Government of Ontario, and in partnership with the Learning Disability Association of Windsor Essex (LDAWE), The ADHDe Project will host a series of social media campaigns, workshops, and seminars along with a permanent digital resource for people who identify as neurodiverse. 

If you are interested in learning more about the project or would like to get in touch with the Student Project Coordinators, please send an email to: adhdeproject@uwindsor.ca
