Get Informed During ADHD Awareness Week

Learn about how this condition affects the people around you with Tuesday's presentation at the Larkspur Library.

Here are some of the highlights happening around the Larkspur and Corte Madera Twin Cities area Oct. 15-16:

Christine Pollock, M.S. and ADHD coach, will be at the Larkspur Library on Tuesday at 7 p.m. to present: “The Many Faces of ADHD.” Her presentation comes in conjunction with ADHD Awareness Week, Oct. 14-20.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is a complex neurobiological disorder that affects millions of children and adults worldwide, yet 85 percent of those affected remain undiagnosed. The stigma and myths that surround ADHD often keep people from getting what they need — information and support that would help them manage their challenges and take better advantage of their strengths.
