ROTA launches discussion paper on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and London’s BAME communities

Between November 2011 and February 2013, ROTA delivered the Shaping the Future seminar series, which considered educational reforms and the current state of play in terms of educational inequality. A concerning discussion point that came up at many of the seminars was that growing numbers of BAME children and young people are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and pressurized to take medication by healthcare professionals and schools.

ROTA has just launched a discussion paper and survey to explore this discussion point further. Read the paper at http://www.rota.org.uk/category/publications/research-publications  and access the survey HERE.
