October is ADHD Awareness Month!

ADHD Awareness Month is celebrated every October, with events and activities happening all across the country and now, around the world, on the ground and on the Internet, capturing the notice of numerous national, regional and local media outlets resulting in articles, interviews and feature stories.

ADDA is a founding member of the ADHDAwarenessMonth.org coalition, along with ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO) and Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (CHADD).

This is the same group that brings you the International Conference on ADHD every year in November.

Every October, as we celebrate ADHD Awareness Month, you can count on ADDA to find ways to make it easier than ever for you, an adult with ADHD to help yourself.

That’s why our TADD Talks are a perennial hit! We ask the best of the best experts in adult ADHD to give our ADHD version of a “TED Talk.” Except TED talks are 18 minutes long. Our ADHD audience has a teeny bit of trouble paying attention so we cut that in half! TADD Talks are only 9 minutes long!


Subscribe to the ADDA Insider, and stay tuned all month (and year!) for exciting announcements that will help you help yourself.
