PANDA BLSO (People Apt at Negotiating Deficits of Attention – Basses-Laurentides Sud-Ouest) is a non profit community organization that developed an English chapter in 1997.

PANDA was created to respond to the needs of parents living with children with Attention Deficit /Hyperactivity Disorder in the region.  Over the years PANDA has expanded its services to include information about ADHD over the lifespan in adolescence and adults with symptoms. The services are intented for every person living with ADHD and their relatives.

Our philosophy is to provide a safe and non-judgemental service with support and information to anyone who is living with the challenges associated with inattention, impulsivity and or hyperactivity with or without a diagnosis.  Our priority is to offer strategies to help reach everyone’s full potential.

PANDA BLSO is a member of the “Regroupement des Associations PANDA du Québec.” We also represent our members on various committees and panels in the region.
