Hello brains a lot of you have been asking “what happened to the ADHD you US school guidance that we worked so hard to save a month ago?” and….. Should we tell them? ok we’ll tell you :::theme music::: Month ago this ADHD school guidance was on the chopping block along with a lot of other school regulations and the US Department of Education asked for comments to help them decide Which to cut and which to keep. So we asked you to pitch in and tell them why this guidance shouldn’t be cut I was Amazed at the response and so so proud of this tribe. You guys submitted hundreds of comments And they were amazing!! I first heard about this through Jo, a teacher from New York who helps out with the channel sometimes So I thought that it would be cool to let her tell you the news herself… Hello Jo! Jo: Hey Jessica, thanks for letting me be the one to share the REALLY good news that even though 72 guidance documents were rescinded by the US Education Department. The one regarding ADHD was not one of them!!!! As a teacher and as somebody who grew up with ADHD undiagnosed and didn’t know until I was older than I’d like to admit Thank you all for your activism. Thanks for helping us out so that we can keep helping young brains do better with their lives So YES… to everybody who submitted a comment to help save this guidance. Thank you, congratulations and mission accomplished Of course there’s always more to do and I will update you anytime I hear about something you can do to help! For instance if you are a brain or heart in the UK there’s the petition going right now to help improve ADHD treatment and understanding in the UK check out this video to learn more, and if you aren’t in the UK But you know somebody who is please take a second to share that video with them. That’s it for this week We still have dog-o’s in 360 coming your way soon as well as the huge brain collab…. that was more of an undertaking than we expected But it’s coming along really well. Thank you to everybody who submitted a video We just wanted to update you all in the meantime because you worked so hard to keep the ADHD school guidance safe! If you don’t live in the US or the UK or you didn’t get a chance to sign a petition or you’re too young to , I don’t know do government- Y-things… You can still help spread understanding about ADHD by sharing our TED talk with your local school district I’m getting a lot of feedback from teachers saying that it’s helping them understand how to help their students Thank you again. If you made it to the end of this video. Thank you so much for caring about ADHD advocacy It’s really making a difference And thank you to our brain advocates and all of our patreon brains for their support that allows us to keep doing this to keep working to make the world a Better place for ADHD brains and the hearts who love them. I’ll see you next week bye brians!
