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 you can 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.
DAY 24 AWARENESS ACTIVITY
Have a child with ADHD? Ask your child’s teacher if you can read a book about ADHD to the class during story time.
Some options (age-dependent):
- A Walk in the Rain with an ADHD Brain by Dr. Edward Hallowell
- Eddie Enough! by Debbie Zimmett
- Cory Stories by Jeanne Kraus
If you don’t have a child, share information about ADHD with some teens you know, someone at work or even a neighbor or two.
(Note: a great book to share with teens is: A Birds Eye View by Chris Dendy and Alex Zeigler,)
Thank you for advancing ADHD Awareness and support this month … and any time!
