Welcome to the official webpage of The ADHDe Project!
Who We Are
The ADHDe Project is a student-led initiative that was implemented at the University of Windsor during the fall of 2022. This project aimed to promote inclusion and respect for university students who identify as neurodiverse.
Funded by the Government of Ontario’s EnAbling Change Program, and in partnership with the Learning Disability Association of Windsor Essex (LDAWE), The ADHDe Project hosted a series of social media campaigns, workshops, and seminars from September 2022-December 2022.
The ADHDe Project Press Book

This means that anyone in any institution, organization, or sector can use the resources created to use for their own community.
