ADHD Champions are teaming with CHADD to raise awareness and generate positive messages about ADHD for CHADD during ADHD Awareness Month in October. Feel proud about yourself or your family during ADHD Awareness Month and spread the word! Join the buzz!

 

Raise awareness through our ADHD Champion Social Media Campaign!

Wendy Davis, the popular actress featured on the television shows Scandal and Army Wives, thinks living with ADHD makes her different, not defective. She outlined her approach and philosophy to managing ADHD in the October 2013 issue of CHADD's Attention magazine.


Many successful people have ADHD. Triathlete Max Fennell, race car driver Luca Forgeois, producer and director Chusy Jardine, public relations expert Peter Shankman, Auburn University football player Peyton Barber, make up business owner Marta Bota, UPS sales executive Mark Merrilees, best-selling author Dr. Dale Archer, and junior golf player Sean Murray, who also live with ADHD, experienced challenges in their lives. Just like you, most of them struggled as youth in school, but found their gifts and creative ways to be successful. Read their personal stories at our special ADHD Champions page. These ADHD Champions are leading the CHADD social media campaign during ADHD awareness month and encourage you to participate!
