ADHD Awareness Month October 2020

CHADD celebrates ADHD Awareness Month each October to improve the lives of the 17 million children and adults in the United State living with ADHD, their family members, teachers, and professionals working with them.

This year's theme is Common Questions: Reliable Answers. There are many questions when a person is first diagnosed with ADHD. For others, there are questions surrounding treatment options, social life, the workplace, and academics. What is the best approach to treatment? Where can you find help and support? This October we will explore those questions and many more, bringing you answers from experts in ADHD research and treatment.

CHADD is part of the ADHD Awareness Month Coalition, which provides a wealth of information at
