$50 Million to Teach ‘The Art of Peeing’ to Kids with ADHD
The American Academy of Pediatrics says it’s offering $50 million to teachers and parents to teach children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to “the art of peeing.”
The $50,000 grant will go toward a pilot program that will teach kids to be more mindful when they pee, such as keeping their hands to themselves, said Sarah Fassbender, the organization’s director of public policy.
The money will be used for equipment and for a pilot project to teach them how to do it safely.
The program would begin in early 2019 and be overseen by a nonprofit organization, Fassbent said.
A grant is not a mandate for the program.
The U.S. Surgeon General said in January that he believes children with ADHD need a more integrated approach to socializing.
