ADHD Awareness Month (October 2016)

October is ADHD Awareness Month and recently I received an email from the ADHD Awareness Coalition to share my knowledge to help parents, teachers, students, adults, and professionals who work with those with ADHD.

This year's ADHD awareness theme is “Knowing is Better” as "it’s better for parents to know that ADHD might be a part of the picture so they can seek out the help they need; it’s better for young adults to know about their ADHD so they might arrange for appropriate accommodations in school or the workplace; and it’s better for adults to recognize their ADHD instead of feeling destined to a life of underachievement and frustration."

I couldn’t agree more! For more information about ADHD Awareness Month and the different resources available through the coalition, please Click Here

Here are three of my favorite ADHD Online Resources:

ADDA - Attention Deficit Disorder Association

CHADD - Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

ADDitude Magazine

Don’t miss out on the TADD Talks! 

As part of ADHD Awareness Month, ADDA has created Talks for ADHD Awareness (TADD), where they’ll be talking about ADD every day the entire month of October! ADDA has called on some of the most recognized experts to speak on adult ADHD and I am so honored to be included in that list! 

A word-play on “TED talks," which are 18 minute presentations, TADD recordings are only nine minutes long! The topic I'll be covering is "Organizing with ADHD: How to Set Up Realistic Expectations!" and is scheduled for the middle of the October. Please join me to learn something new!
