DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -
The Ordinary People Society, otherwise known as T.O.P.S, launched their “ADHD ISN’T ME” initiative in Dothan.
“ADHD ISN’T ME” is a community advocacy program that provides support to children diagnosed with Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder.
They brought forth this initiative first with a march then a discussion panel including District 1 school board member Brenda Guilford.
Their hopes are to bridge the gap between parents of children with ADHD and the school board.
"This is the beginning of developing a friendship with the board of education; allowing grass-root organizations such as The Ordinary People Society to be able to mediate, be a mediator for parents and advocate for children on their rights in school" said Rodreshia Roussaw, program director for T.O.P.S and also the spearhead of this initiative.
Teachers, parents, children and school board chairman Mike Schmitz were all in attendance to better learn about T.O.P.S plans.
The group plans on putting together a committee to attend future school board meetings.
