      • SharonI just wanted to introduce myself and the cause we are working to develop here in Trinidad and Tobago. I met a wonderful family today who inspired me to take this next step. We are pioneering an effort to educate our educators about our ADHD Geniuses and STOP the unintended negative consequences which they become exposed to. I hope that we can find the support and possibly form a chapter for our region here.
        I look forward to engaging with all your wonderful minds!
        Sincerely,
