Back in February, The Family Institute at Northwestern University hosted two additional screenings of The Disruptors Film. These screenings took place at New Trier High School on February 13, and at Roycemore School on February 15. The Disruptors documentary allows us to hear from several people about their ADHD, and takes an immersive look at our country's approach to ADHD that debunks the most harmful myths, intimately taking viewers inside a number of families as they navigate the challenges and the surprising triumphs of living with ADHD. Following each screening, a panel with representatives from The Family Institute and the participating host school discussed the film and the multiple perspectives surrounding ADHD. Please see below for details pertaining to both screenings.
