October is ADHD Awareness Month. Our team do our best to raise awareness and celebrate the strengths of ADHD all year round, but in October we get a little bit louder.
There are those who would question the point of having an awareness month, when of course our children have ADHD all year round, but the point of an awareness month is to amplify the message. As a small charity our voice can only go so far, but when lots of small charities and other organisations all shout together at the same time we get a lot louder and manage to reach a lot more people.
As a small charity, we don’t have the resource to create lots of content, so throughout this month in addition to any new material we’ll also be resharing some videos and other content from the last few years.
Monthly ADHD Meet Up
We will be holding our usual monthly meet up for parents and carers on Tuesday 10th October at The Dog and Partridge from 7.00 pm until 9.00 pm. We meet every month on the second Tuesday of the Month from 7.00 pm until 9.00 pm. Unfortunately there are still a couple of places online suggesting that we meet on Wednesdays, which are doing our best to get updated. A full list of our meet ups for the rest of the year are available on this website. We also have a parent and carer email list where we send a monthly reminder along with any other news we have.
Our monthly meet ups are for parents and carers and provide an opportunity to meet other parents who share the same challenges.
Over the next year we’re planning to create some more resources for those who work with people who have ADHD in a professional capacity. Our focus will always be on families but we know that there are lots of teachers, sports coaches and other professionals who’d love to know more about ADHD, so that they can support the children they work with.
Our focus for this year is to keep reminding people of the facts about ADHD and make sure that local parents and carers know that we exist.
