ADHD Awareness Month was a great success last year, with events and activities happening all across the country, in other countries and on the Internet, capturing the notice of numerous regional and local media outlets resulting in articles, interviews & feature stories.
The theme for this year's ADHD Awareness Month is...
"The Many Faces of ADHD”
We want to make this year’s events even better than last years, and we need everyone’s participation, so...
We have prepared an ADHD Awareness Month toolkit ready for you. DOWNLOAD IT HERE.
ADDA was part of a historic partnership of organizations who came together to promote ADHD Awareness Week: CHADD, ACO and ADDitude Magazine. This collaboration led to the creation of the website ADHD Awareness Month where you can find information about ADHD and links to the other organizations’ awareness activities. We encourage you to visit the site and use the materials in your community.

We also encourage you to notify your local library and/or bookstores about awareness week and to ask them if they could make a special display table of books about ADHD and to perhaps include the flier. Even if they simply use books that they already have on the shelf, this draws additional attention to the cause.
