Yvonne Harman investigated rising Queensland primary school suspensions. Evidence of associations between ADHD and problematic interactive media use, alongside her finding that the suspended children in her study scored 3 times higher for hyperactivity and peer problem traits than non-suspended children, guided policy recommendations on school-site screen time and student profiling on enrolment.
