We will provide lunch on the 22nd and the lunch session will have a brief discussion with the District’s Licensed Specialist in School Psychology.
Here's a little more info about the documentary:
ADD & Loving it?! has been called “the best film ever made on ADHD.” Okay, we called it that, but thousands agree! Originally aired on Global Television in Canada and PBS in the US, this award-winning documentary is changing lives.
Made by and for adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, this is a must-see for anyone who has ever been impacted by this much-misunderstood disorder -- or wondered if they had it.
We hope to see you there!
