Neurodivergents: Justice Warriors

ADHD and Justice Sensitivity: Something important you may not know about ADHD

“Kids with ADHD tend to have a strong sense of justice, sensitivity, and of course, energy. When they feel wronged, disempowered, or unheard, they can become quite mad.”

— Dr. Sharon Saline

“Pronounced justice sensitivity is a coping strategy people with ADHD use to infer the right social behaviour.”

(Schäfer & Kraneburg, 2015)

Maybe we should get capes.

I’m totally getting a cape.
