October is ADHD Awareness Month – an international movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about attention deficit disorder.
The ADHD Awareness Month Coalition has put together a rich array of resources to use in getting the word out. These include a press kit, posters, fact sheets, a calendar listing 31 ways to spread the word… and more!
I am determined to help spread the word – and I invite you to spread the word too!
The ADHD Awareness Coalition has made it easy by putting together a calendar with suggestions for 31 ways to spread the word this month. Here’s one:
