October is ADHD Awareness Month
How a Few Minutes of Your Time Can Help Effect Change!
Although ADHD is the most common childhood neurodevelopmental disorder in Canada it continues to be misunderstood, stigmatized and denied as a legitimate disability.
If ADHD has touched your life, or the life or someone you love you know that most people really do not understand the true impact of ADHD.
Sadly, this has meant that many individuals and families impacted by ADHD still find it difficult to open up about their challenges and experiences. While CADDAC certainly understands this reluctance, we also recognize how this has significantly hampered ADHD awareness, education and advocacy efforts.
To change this CADDAC is launching “ADHD Speaks”, a long-term awareness campaign encouraging people to speak out about ADHD.
ADHD Speaks is all about increasing understanding and decreasing the existing negative stigma around ADHD
CADDAC is asking people of all ages, and walks of life, those with ADHD, caregivers, educators, medical professionals and anyone whose life or the life of someone you know has been touched by ADHD to help effect change by speaking out about ADHD.
Share your thoughts, experiences or revelations about ADHD by sending us:
- A brief video clip or audio clip using your smartphone
- A written story or picture
- Contact your elected officials to let them know that ADHD matters to you
Help spread the word by sharing this FLYER
CADDAC will then share your messages to build a better understanding of ADHD that can REALLY make a positive difference.
