ADHD, which stands for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, is a neurodivergent condition that affects both children and adults worldwide.
ADHD is a lifelong condition that is often stereotypically associated with hyperactivity, lack of focus and ‘disruptive behaviour’ particularly in school. However, people with ADHD are also creative problem solvers, capable of deep focus on tasks that interest them and bring innovation to their work.
It is ADHD Awareness Month in October, which is a time to reflect on what ADHD is, how it affects people, and celebrate neurodiversity in general.
ADHD Awareness Month is observed in October each year.
The ADHD Awareness Month 2022 theme is:
ADHD: Understanding a Shared Experience
