ADHD Awareness Month Activities 2016 And Ideas For ADHD Book Displays In Your City, Province or State

ADHD Awareness Month 2016 Canada

ADHD Awareness Month 2016 US
October is ADHD Awareness month. Here’s what’s going on and some ideas for ADHD book displays in your city, province or state based on what I and volunteers of my Vancouver Adult ADD Support group have done in BC for 4 years. 

Canadian ADHD Awareness Month site.

American ADHD Awareness Month site.

US ADDA’s Daily TADD Talks, Talking about ADD Talks every day in October.

Swedish site. Will your country be the next to have and ADHD Awareness week or month?

No BC ADHD Awareness activities this year, but here’s what we did in years past.

In 2014 we had 122 BC Libraries and bookstores in 68 BC communities with BC ADHD Awareness week book displays with our poster, Vancouver Adult ADD support group brochure, CHADD Vancouver ADHD support group brochure, Adult ADHD screener test, books on ADHD and books by publicly confirmed authors with ADHD in all corners of BC.

You might consider modifying what we did with ADHD book displays in Libraries to have ADHD book displays in your city, province or state.

Key is making it easy for librarians to say yes by providing lists of ADHD books and books by authors who have gone public with ADHD who have written non-ADHD books. Plus online or printed collateral, scripts for your volunteers to phone and email them, AND follow up and for you to track it in excel or something like that. Details below.

Me and Christopher at Richmond Brighouse Library. I got diagnosed with ADHD because I saw a list of ADHD symptoms in a CHADD Richmond (sadly no longer operating) ADHD poster and an ADHD book display on the 2nd floor many years ago.
