Hi Everyone, I have a question regarding ADHD and how Australia tends to handle the condition. My son has severe ADHD and is now medicated which has improved his life greatly. Anyways, I am wondering if Australia is as open to medicating ADHD or if they tend to let these kids go unmedicated? Will we have trouble finding a doctor to help us? Will schools be supportive in helping my son with his unique needs? I am just wondering how much of a struggle we might be in for when we move. Maybe I'm worried about nothing? Thanks in advance for any input! Megan
