AD/HD Awareness Week
September 14, 2008
until September 20, 2008
September 14-20 is AD/HD Awareness Week
In recognition of AD/HD Awareness Week, CHADD, the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA), and ADDitude magazine have joined forces to raise the public’s understanding of the impact that AD/HD can have on personal relationships throughout an individual’s lifetime.
This year’s theme—From First Years to Golden Years: AD/HD and Life’s Relationships—focuses on the key times in a person’s life when AD/HD poses relationship challenges.
Some local CHADD groups will hold AD/HD fun days that will allow communities across the country to focus on issues important to those affected by AD/HD.
Here are some things you can do for AD/HD Awareness Week.
