PANDA - Who are we?

PANDA BLSO (People Apt at Negotiating Deficits of Attention – Basses Laurentides Sud-Ouest) is a non profit community organization that developed an English chapter in 1997.  For more information on the history...

PANDA was created to respond to the needs of parents living with children with Attention Deficit /Hyperactivity Disorder in the region.  Over the years PANDA has expanded its services to include information about ADHD over the lifespan in adolescence and adults with symptoms.

Our philosophy is to provide a safe and non-judgemental service with support and information to anyone who is living with the challenges associated with inattention, impulsivity and or hyperactivity with or without a diagnosis.  Our priority is to offer strategies to help reach ones full potential.

4. To sensitize and inform the community about ADHD.
