October is ADHD Awareness Month
The mission of ADHD Awareness Month is to educate the public about ADHD by disseminating reliable information based on the evidence of science and peer-reviewed research.
The 2019 theme is “ADHD Myths and Facts : Know the Difference.” It’s better for parents to know that ADHD might be part of the picture so they can seek out the help their children need; it’s better for young adults to know about their ADHD so they might arrange for appropriate accommodations in school or the workplace; and it’s better for adults to recognize their ADHD instead of feeling destined to a life of underachievement and frustration.
Armed with reliable information about ADHD, we encourage people affected by ADHD to seek assessment, get appropriate treatment, and share resources.
