Why Do We Even Need An ADHD Awareness Day?

Prior to 2004, there was no national, recognized day of awareness for ADHD. In fact, it was a dream that some had hoped would be possible, but were hesitant to realize the potential and reality of making this day what it is today.

Join David Giwerc, Evelyn Green, and Michele Novotni, PhD as they recall the planning, chaos, dream, and fun of organizing and putting together a congressional resolution to make ADHD Awareness Day the event it is today! These three visionary thought leaders headed the cause and worked through resistance and tight deadlines to realize this dream. Hear them tell the story of what happened, how it happened, and why it is so important.

I’ll give you a hint…the power of success comes from three keys they discuss towards the end of this informative, light-hearted, and fun discussion.
