The week of October 16 – 22, 2011 is ADHD Awareness week. It is a perfect time to reflect on the realities of ADHD in your life and to share them with others who perhaps are not as knowledgeable as you are.
The facts about ADD have become more clear over the years. The science is building and the most informed psychological, medical and educational experts have all reached the same conclusion: that ADHD is a real, brain-based medical disorder, and that children and adults with ADHD benefit from appropriate treatment.
ADHD Awareness Week is a great time to dispel the myths about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Sorting fact from fiction can be difficult in the digital age, but the fact is the NIH, the American Psychological Society, the Department of Education and other reputable organizations have all officially recognized that ADHD is a real, legitimate condition affecting over 15 million Americans.
In spite of this, there continue to be those who refuse to face the facts and loudly voice skepticism that ADD/ADHD is real and that its treatments are necessary.
ADDnaturalTreatment.com is here to arm you with truth and to keep you well informed, so you will be prepared for the skeptics you encounter with intelligent, factual points. We are here to help you spread the word about this condition, so that others will understand and see ADHD for what it is.
ADDitude magazine has several virtual events taking place this week that our readers will definitely be interested in. Here is your invitation:
I hope all of our readers will find the time to educate themselves and to share that knowledge with others to help promote the common understanding of what attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is and what it isn’t. Have a great week!
