Mind Matters: Systemic Struggles of Children with ADHD

In Malaysia, it is estimated that between 1.6% and 4.6% of children have ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactive disorder. But statistics do not tell us the reality of the struggles faced by these children, when it comes to managing their daily routines, making friends, coping with school, and being accepted by people around them. We speak to Nik Norezreen Nik Adnan, a parent of a primary-age child with ADHD, about the systemic barriers that present challenges to children and their caregivers. In the same conversation is Liana Mohd Nawi, Director of Clinical Services, Thrive Well, to share thoughts on how we can better support families, when it comes to assessment and professional support.
