October is ADHD Awareness Month!

October is ADHD Awareness MonthAs a way to bring more awareness to ADHD, we would like to invite you to share your thoughts about what you have learned about ADHD and how that has helped you to make positive changes in your life.

During the month of October, we will share these responses on our podcast, Inside ADHD. Sharing your stories will provide an opportunity for you to reflect on how you may have grown in your understanding of ADHD and how this new understanding may have helped you to make positive changes. Families who are new to the ADHD diagnosis may also be inspired to hear how other families have grown throughout the process of coming to understand the diagnosis. Answers will be shared anonymously.

For the month of October, the Inside ADHD podcast will have new episodes each Monday that will tackle specific ADHD myths. Accurate information will be provided so that listeners can understand why the myths are untrue and unhelpful.

We hope you will join us all October long and participate in the conversation by completing our survey and sharing your stories!
