AD/HD Awareness Week
This year the Senate resolution designated September 18 as AD/HD Awareness Day. This is a time of year for all of us to join together to educate others about AD/HD and the people who live with this difference.
It is also a time to celebrate the positive impact people with AD/HD have had in the lives of others... a time to take special note of how people with AD/HD will continue to impact our world in the future.
Possibly a time to shift your view of the AD/HD brain and how it functions... at it's best it is a beautiful brain that has capacity to:
- Truly think outside the box
- Make connections that many would not notice
- Create with wide vision (some)
- Create with fine detail (others)
- and much, much more...
If you have information that would add to the above or following information sharing... please join with us by e-mailing your information to firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion.
