Well, in case you didn’t know, it’s also ADHD Awareness Month!! Yep, that’s right, we ADHDers get an awareness month, too!
This year’s theme is “setting the record straight”, because, sadly, even in this day & age, there are still a lot of myths and misinformation out there about ADHD, and the only way to destroy stigmas is to correct the misconceptions!
There is lots of informative stuff scheduled this month, including the 9th Annual ADHD Awareness Expo running all month long and jammed packed with brilliant speakers on a HUGE range of ADHD-related topics. Here are just a few of the presentations you can watch over the coming month –
