Week #4

Advocate for Yourself!

Use ADHD Awareness Month to join the ADHD Community in spreading the facts, rebutting the myths, and giving hope to adults and children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder!

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder can take a toll on you and your family members. Take action this week to learn how to improve your life and the lives of those you know who live with ADHD.

Actions You Can Take TODAY
