ADHD and Me

Children’s voices come to life in animation as they describe symptoms of ADHD and what it’s like to have treatment.

The VOICES (Voices On Identity, Childhood, Ethics & Stimulants) study involved 150 children in the United States and the United Kingdom. The film uses clips from the actual interviews with the children. They describe what it’s like to take Ritalin, how they feel, and what improvements they experience. It also describes downsides. Stigma is another issue tackled.

The film stresses the importance of involving the child, and listening. It’s good information for parents to work with as they make ADHD treatment plans for the whole family.
