October is ADHD Awareness Month

We’re halfway through Global ADHD Awareness Month, and CHADD and other organizations are fighting stigma and spreading the truth about ADHD!

ADHD is a non-discriminatory disorder affecting people of every age, gender, IQ, and religious and socioeconomic background.
Nearly every mainstream medical, psychological, and educational organization in the U.S. has concluded that ADHD is a real, brain-based medical disorder, and that people with ADHD of all ages and backgrounds benefit from appropriate treatment.
