ADHD Awareness Month 2014 - A Recap
As ADHD Awareness Month comes to a close for 2014, it seems appropriate to review some of the activities.
How Did ADHD Awareness Month Get Started?
October is ADHD Awareness Month! But it hasn't always been this way. In this interview from Attention Talk Radio, Jeff Copper and Michele Novotni discuss the origins of ADHD Awareness Week.
It all began when David Giwerc, Michele Novotni and Evelyn Green worked together to write and implement US Resolution 390, which was eventually approved unanimously by the US Senate and is now known as ADHD Awareness Month.

- The idea of ADHD coaching was first mentioned in the book Driven to Distraction co-authored by Dr. Ned Hallowell published in 1994. In this edition of Attention Talk Radio, Dr. Ned Hallowell and Master Certified Coach David Giwerc celebrate the 20-year anniversary of this historic event.
In talking about this interview, Dr Hallowell said this through social media: “(ADHD) Coaching can be more valuable than what a doctor can offer.” This shows you how far the credibility of the coaching profession has come to be recognized as such a critical part of a comprehensive program that can significantly and positively impact people with ADHD.
You've heard of "TED" talks, right? ADDA has created TADD Talks as part of ADHD Awareness Month. They’ve been Talking about ADD (TADD) every day the entire month of October! This talks comes from David Giwerc - From Pathology to Positivity with ADHD – Why It Works and Needs to Be Expanded.
