Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can make life difficult, but the ADHD Awareness Month Resource Fair this Saturday (Oct. 20) in Tysons aims to make living with the disorder a little easier.
Attendees will have a chance to meet with professionals, school representatives, and nonprofit organizations to access resources for those with mental illness and learning disabilities. The event will run from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at BASIS Independent McLean (8000 Jones Branch Drive).
The keynote speaker will be Kathleen Nadeau, a clinical director in Washington, D.C. specializing in the treatment of ADHD. Sessions and panels throughout the day will focus on building supportive environments for people with ADHD and advice for young adults with ADHD.
General admission is free but a $10 donation to Children and Adults with ADD (CHADD) is suggested.
