I just want to check in and revel in this last year! I started the ADHD EMPOWERMENT HOUR right around this time last year and am amazed at how far ADDvocacy ADHD & Life Skills Coaching Ltd. has come since then!
Today is the kick off to ADHD AWARENESS WEEK . This has been recognized in the USA since 2004 but only one city in Canada, Vancouver BC, fully endorses it. http://adultaddstrengths.com/2011/10/20/first-city-in-canada-to-proclaim-adhd-awareness-week-is-vancouver-thanks-vancouver-city-council/
There is a lot going on this week…check the links below:
In addition, I will be putting on a workshop for support staff at Dalhousie University and the former Agricultural College this Tuesday. We will discuss the positives attributes of ADHD at the ADHD EMPOWERMENT HOUR this Thursday October 18th, 2012 in Room 325 at NSCC Turo. I am also working on a number of other workshops and upcoming presentations around ADHD which I am very excited about.
There is still a lot of stigma around ADHD however, we will make our mark slowly but surely.
Have a great week!
