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:
DAY 28 AWARENESS ACTIVITY
If you are like most of us, you’ll encounter an ADHD “doubter” sometime.
Check out the ADHD Awareness Facebook page for a fact-a-day that you can share with doubters: https://www.facebook.com/ADHDAwarenessMonth
Facts not doing it? No worries – try asking a doubter a curious question, for example:
“What is important to you about believing ADHD doesn’t exist?”
That will make for an interesting discussion!
(p.s. Arguing with doubters rarely works! So keep it curious.)
Thank you for your efforts to raise ADHD Awareness this month … and any time you do!
