This year’s book, Check Mates, features a protagonist who has ADHD. While we are not experts in neurodiversity, we are delighted to include a book in our collection that represents 5% of young people worldwide.

If you, a friend or a family member has been diagnosed with ADHD, the resources below will be useful. Also, if you are wanting to support a sibling or classmate with ADHD, this is the page for you.
