  1. I am working as a school nurse in public, all boys, middle school. We have a pretty high rate of students with ADHD/ADD and I have been shocked to find out how little parents, students, and teachers know and/or have been told about it and the affects it has. I have been trying to share information, but would love to give out some magazines to continue to expand awareness and bring better solutions to our boys at such a significant time in life!

  2. I work as a Psychiatry PA-C with special focus on ADHD/2E. I currently recommend ADDitude magazine and website to nearly every ADHD patient or parent I encounter. I’ll whip out my post-it pad and write “ADDitude magazine/website” down like a prescription. For patients/parents who are particularly hesitant about learning to adapt to a new ADHD diagnosis, I’ll stand up to my bookshelf and show them my one little ADDitude magazine display copy… then set it back down on my shelf. It is an excellent and visually appealing example of the validity of the condition. Those families often become the greatest advocates. How amazing would it be if I could let them keep a copy?

  4. Hi! I am a special Ed teacher who is working hard to share resources with my teaching peers and parents. I have shared the many articles and podcasts that have been included in the Attitude magazine I receive at home. This has provided so many opportunities to share and talk about our students who struggle with ADHD. It has provided research that allows parents and teachers to step back and educate themselves and remove the pressure and guilt from themselves. I would love to be able to share the hard copy of your magazine here at school and also be able to share with parents. I am grateful to have stumbled onto Attitude and my only regret is that I have not known about it sooner. My copies are so soft tattered and loved!

  5. I work as a teacher in a rural tourist town, and our student body is comprised of 87% disadvantaged students. As teachers, we work with students who have ADHD, but not every teacher understands it well. When my daughter was diagnosed at the age of 13, I was sitting in the waiting room while her testing was going on, and I read an article in ADDitude magazine and realized that I had ADHD. I had a master’s degree in education, and 7 years of teaching under my belt, and didn’t recognize the symptoms in myself. Since then, I have learned so much about ADHD through your magazine and website. I would love to share a copy of your magazine with teachers in my district to help them understand ADHD better.

  6. I am a mother with an ADHD child. I would give the box of magazines to our middle school counselor, so she can get them in the hands of kiddos who might benefit from learning more about how their minds are wired, discover they are not alone, and possibly learn some of the tips that are offered in the magazine.

  7. I am NOT a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. (If you’ve not seen those commercials then I’m toast). My 1st child was diagnosed in 1st grade with all F’s (or whatever they give 1st graders). Second grade with Methylphenidate was all A’s. Then my second child. Then me. Then my third. Then mild autism. Then extended family members. So I’ve lived this inside and out my whole life. I’ve not been shy to share about 80HD and ASD but I have been discrete. Six copies is a drop in the bucket but 6 individuals and their families could have answers to all their frustrations. Doesn’t matter if I receive the copies because I name drop the ADDitude website to all who wants answers. There is no website as in depth and free for the amount of information available. I thank WebMD for their involvement and also William Dodson for his contributions.

  8. I work as a school counselor. If I a box of ADDitude mags. I would distratrube them throughout the school to all stakeholders, teacehers, paretns admin, and others who will listen. I feel if people new all more things that came along with ADHD, they would be less puntive with students……

  9. If you win, how (and why) will you share ADDitude magazine with your community?

    I am currently working on a project for work about being Neurodivergent in the Workplace – how to work better as a ND and to work better with those around us and providing NT(neurotypical) coworkers and supervisors how to find ways to work better with us and really just educating them and myself about ND’s differences and challenges as well as the positives that come with working with those of us that have a different operating system. I once heard it referred to as running on Linux and the rest of the world runs on Microsoft. This was a bit like a lightbulb going off for me. I want to help the people in my life and community understand me and those like me better. I would use the box of magazines to further the impact of my project. Understanding myself better as I’ve been working on this project has been a beautiful thing. The frustration of not understanding the world around me and what felt like a complete inability to succeed. It’s still a learning process but I am growing and learning to take my work and life and getting processes in place to help me work better and have a more fulfilling personal life as well.

    There I go rambling.

    Thank you for this opportunity and providing such a great resource to help educate us further and to help problem solve our issues navigating so many aspects of being neurodivergent.

  10. I an newly diagnosed and feel overwhelmed with online information. I would love to have printed resources for myself and that I can then also share with family members and our small town school.

  11. I work in an urban public school system. I have been doing district-level PD for interested teachers and counselors. This would be a great way to share your magazine with some of them.
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. I was diagnosed in mid-life after having a child diagnosed, it so relieved me of much shame. I am still working many years later, and continue to use primarily ADDitude to help me understand and deal with my symptoms. I am now on a work council of people with disabilities, advising our organization and staff about employee disability issues, and I focus on neurodiversity. I now know so many people who continue to suffer from workplace challenges, shame, etc, and I’d like to be able to help by sharing these worderful magazine issues.

  13. I work as a social worker/case manager for children and adults with disabilities. The majority of the families I work with deal with co-existing conditions and need guidance and education. ADDitudemag.com is the resource that I share most often. I also attend many of the webinars in order to increase my knowledge of different topics to share with my team and the families I serve. I am also a single mom of children with ADHD.
