Today marks the first day of AD/HD Awareness Week 2011!!
The purpose of the annual AD/HD Awareness Week is to spread the word about AD/HD : what it is, who it affects, and what treatments, skills, and strategies can be helpful for those who are affected by it.
The theme of this year’s AD/HD Awareness week is: Get the Facts! As the AD/HD Awareness Week website says, “ADHD is a real, brain-based medical disorder, and … children and adults with ADHD benefit from appropriate treatment.” This year’s Awareness Week explores that theme in detail.
In support of AD/HD Awareness Week, I will be posting one activity per day on my blog. I hope you will try these activities and find them interesting & informative!
Since the theme of this year’s AD/HD Awareness Week is “Get the Facts!” the activity I am sharing for today directly addresses that theme.
