ADHD Awareness Month

1 October 2023

This October is ADHD Awareness Month.  Difficulty with attention, concentration, memory, impulsivity, hyperactivity, and social skills — these are among the signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which affects millions of people.

ADHD Awareness Month, sponsored by the Attention Deficit Disorder Association, highlights the latest research and clinical studies with the goal of bringing more effective treatments. Its guiding principle is that life can be better for those with #ADHD and for those who love or work with someone with ADHD.

  1. It affects a wide variety of people

    No demographic is immune from ADHD. It’s found in people of all ages and backgrounds. Nearly 10 % of children will be diagnosed with ADHD and more than 4 % of adults will exhibit symptoms.

  2. It’s genetic

    No one is to blame for ADHD. It’s a brain-based disorder that is often genetic. Family history can can play a role in children who are diagnosed. Prenatal risk is a factor — along with environmental toxins.

  3. ADHD contributes to other problems

    They include the loss of productivity at work or school, relationship problems, obesity, and legal troubles.

    The best way to change people’s views about ADHD is to let them know: it’s not about somebody else, it’s about someone they know.
