ADHD Awareness

You can’t tell by looking!

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting both children and adults around the globe.

October is ADHD Awareness Month

That’s a whole month devoted to sharing reliable information about ADHD based on science and peer-reviewed research.

ADHD awareness is not just for the month October, of course. As people living with ADHD, or working with those with ADHD, we have the opportunity to be leaders in our local and online communities as we shine a light on ADHD, providing trustworthy resources all year long!

This year’s theme is
Reframing ADHD: Discovering New Perspectives

We offer you an opportunity to hear from ADHD experts as well as people who will share their lived experience with ADHD. We encourage you to browse our website – check out answers to common questions and myths and facts about ADHD.

Armed with reliable information about ADHD, we encourage people affected by ADHD to

  • seek assessment,
  • get appropriate treatment, and
  • share resources.

Check the creative sides of people with ADHD in their art and stories. Laugh over their submitted memes.
