The program will be presented by Linda Swanson, MA, ACG, ACC and Neil Swanson, MDiv, PACG, ACC, graduates of ADD Coach Academy and credentialed by the International Coach Federation.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a label used for a particular variation in human brain “wiring” that can result in greater than average distractibility, disorganization, limited focus, etc. It occurs in about 10% of children and 5% of adults. Although scientific researchers are continually discovering surprising new information about ADHD, it is still widely misunderstood by the general public. October is ADHD Awareness Month – an attempt to address many misunderstandings and to help people even appreciate some advantages of ADHD.

The program will begin with “ADD and Loving it?!” a groundbreaking video that blends humor, hope and science to dispel the myths about ADHD. An interactive discussion will follow.

“Our hope is that those viewing and discussing this film will experience the same sort of dramatic leap forward in their awareness about ADHD and ADHD treatment as was reported by so many of those viewing this film last year,” according to Neil Swanson. This is the second time the program has been offered through the Fauquier County Public Library.
