Research

With more and more students and adults being diagnosed with ADHD, will our archaic measurements for success need an upgrade? Achievement gaps cant be attested to many factors in Ontario, but with the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic, challenges that stunts face are amplified, especially with school assessments such as EQAO. This research uses Critical Disabilities Theory, System-based Learning, and Gamification as a potential solution to work through these challenges and lift students to their full potential.
