2013 BC ADHD Awareness Week Activities

Now 80 BC ADHD Awareness Week Activities. This page will track the various ADHD Awareness Week 2013 activities the Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group volunteers, I and our supporters are putting on in BC’s lower mainland. It will be updated as we add new activities.

Thanks to our Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group volunteers for making these ADHD Awareness Week events happen: Ed, Jade Vajna, Maggie J.H. Wang (CGD),  Jean, Christopher Stanbury, Paul,  Yuanyuan Jiang, Robert Murray & Chris Green.

ADHD books displays at 78 Libraries and book stores throughout 23 cities in the Lower Mainland. Details below.  There will be ADHD books, books by authors who have ADHD on other topics, our ADHD Awareness Week Poster and Brochures on the only 2 ADHD support group in all of BC, My Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group and CHADD Vancouver.

Here are some authors who have gone public with having ADHD (vs someone thinks bob jones may have ADHD) and who have written book on topics other than (or in addition to) ADHD: Rick Riordan, Dave Pikey, Jamie Oliver, Seth Godin, Katherine Ellison, Ty Pennington, Dr. Edward Hallowell, Dr. John Ratey, Dr. Gabor Mate, James Carville, Paul Orfelea, Terry Bradshaw, Michelle Novotni, Zoe Kessler.

Please contact me if you know other authors who have publicly confirmed (vs you think they have it or they have learning disabilities and not ADHD and have been mistakenly put on an famous ADDers list) they have ADHD and have written non ADHD books
