That’s right my ADHD tribe, October is our month!
We don’t have exclusive rights to October awareness, we share it with numerous of other worthy causes, both high profile and obscure – Breast Cancer, Domestic Violence, Down Syndrome, Bullying Prevention, Depression, Menopause, Italian-American Heritage, Caffeine Addiction Recovery, Ergonomics, Chiropractic & Physical Therapy (seems appropriate chiropractor & PTs share the same month), Books, and a plethora of foods – chili, caramel, pasta, pizza, pretzels, pickled peppers & sausage – to name just a few.
It’s a super important month for us fast brainers, with lots of great information being shared for new ADHDers, ADHD veterans, and those who have the pleasure of living or working with us.
Yesterday, to prepare for ADHD Awareness Month, Additude Magazine hosted What Is ADHD? Everything You Need to Know Before and After an ADHD Diagnosis with Dr. William Dodson. (Click on the title to listen to the free replay.)
Then, be sure to check out the ADHD Awareness Month Expo! The Expo is jam-packed with brilliant ADHD clinicians, coaches, decluterers and more! And best of all…it’s FREE!
