HADD's mission is to make life better for people affected by ADHD

A huge splash of colour is coming to Liverpool this summer, as 200 brightly coloured umbrellas are set to be suspended over a busy city centre street to raise awareness and understanding and encourage discussion around Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autism.

Devised and curated by Liverpool-based ADHD Foundation, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary as a charity, the Umbrella Project will transform Church Alley (leading up to the Bluecoat) into a canopy of colour from the end of June through to August.

We thought we would start this Monday with a little humour as well!

Reading is one of the most crucial activities for children, promoting language development, building knowledge, and setting up academic success – but getting children with ADHD to read can be tough. ADHD makes reading more difficult, since reading relies on attention and executive function. Quality instruction is only part of the solution, because reading with ease and comprehension only follows from consistent practice. Since kids often avoid doing things that feel difficult, the children who need reading practice most, don’t do it.

It’s Monday and we needed a laugh, thanks to www.additudemag.com “You know you have ADHD when…”

1. You can’t find your car keys or your spare set, and your husband is hesitant to lend you his keys because you will probably misplace those, too. (And, you agree, he may be right!)

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, surveys have shown that boys are more likely than girls to ever be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – 13.2 percent to 5.6 percent, respectively.
