Karen O’Donnell and Zoë Kessler
In Karen O’Donnell, A Mind Like Mine (And, Possibly, Yours!), Part I, we explored stigma and the label ADHD; parenting a son with severe ADHD, and much more with Toronto, Ontario-based Producer/Director/Writer Karen O’Donnell.
In Part II, O’Donnell talks about ADHD in the workplace in her career as a Toronto, Canada based documentary filmmaker, parenting and ADHD, and more. Enjoy!
Toronto, Ontario-based Producer/Director/Writer Karen O’Donnell has produced two ADHD-focused films to date, the first, Odd Kid Out, in 2002, and the second, A Mind Like Mine, which was released in 2009 and has aired internationally.
O’Donnell is a fierce advocate on behalf of not only her own son, Kail, (diagnosed with ADD since age 7), but for everyone who struggles with ADHD.
Her film, A Mind Like Mine, is compelling, touching, dramatic and informative, as she documents the lives of ADHDers and skilfully weaves interviews with various professionals throughout the story.
