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 debate about Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is over. And the truth about ADHD is clear:
ADHD is a non-discriminatory disorder – affecting people of every age, gender, IQ, and religious and socioeconomic background.
Long ago just about every mainstream medical, psychological, and educational organization in the U.S. concluded that ADHD is a real, brain-based medical disorder, and that people with ADHD of all ages and backgrounds benefit from appropriate treatment. So, do you know what appropriate treatment is? Are you up-to-date on what kind of help is available? A lot has changed in the last 20 and even in just the last five years. Get strategic. Learn more.
