Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) is drafting legislation to declare September 19, 2007 as "AD/HD Awareness Day." The Senator hopes to have the legislation introduced soon and to have the Senate pass the legislation before it leaves Washington, DC for the August legislative recess.

Wow!... that's fantastic! When I became aware of ADHD ten years ago there was so much ambivalence surrounding it. The controversy remains, but look how far we've come! This warms my heart! Thanks Tara!!

Greetings all!

I'm just curious - what are some ways people are commemorating this event and/or raising awareness?

Well, a clinic in Middletown hosts ADHD Awareness Day each year. One year they had like 5 or 6 different speakers. they cover lots of things like neurofeedback, medication and had 3 or 4 different kind of doctors one year. I am not sure if they have anything planned yet for 2007. check their website at www.ct-ed.com (http://www.ct-ed.com) - the doctor there is great!!

Well, doesn't it figure, I missed it!!! I am glad that someone felt that this condition was important enough to give it it's own day.

Actually, when we think about it Lunaslobo, very few medical professionals seem to be aware of it (at least in our part of the world). I wonder how many educators also know about this day? We had to find out about it on the internet. :)
