Understanding + Intervention = Positive change
Welcome to fall everyone,
Parents take a front seat this month, but we’ve got a little something for everyone.
- ADHD Awareness – Where can I learn more? and What does it mean for you?
- Interventions to help increase performance
- Being an effective advocate for your child
- Homework strategies
- 2 short informative, but fun videos for both children and adults.
October is ADHD Awareness month As the official website attests, “Knowing is better.” They cover basic information, provide personal stories, and are sponsoring a video contest that’s sure to entertain.
Try to find time for the ADHD Awareness Expo, from October 2nd – 17th. Watch at least a one or two of Tara McGillicuddy’s interviews with top names in the field at this FREE online event. Sign up now. Videos are pre-recorded and available for 24-hours after 12 noon each day.
Another online event is ADDA’S Daily TADD Talks! TADD recordings are like TEDTalks, but about various ADHD topics and only 9 minutes long . You’ll also be able to see many of these speakers in person at the International Conference on ADHD November 9 – 12 in Atlanta! Consider this an appetizer!
ADDitude Magazine offers advocacy and stigma-busting tips in their ADHD Awareness Month Toolkit (Link works) and by sharing 31 truths about the condition. ***My own ADHD Awareness board on Pinterest also offers a lot of good material.
II’ve collected a number of resources to inform and support diagnosis, treatment and other necessary services for children and adults with ADHD. I would get numerous calls a day asking for help to find Treatment and Support. This section also includes a money concerns section with sources for more affordable medications and mental health care.
