This past Sunday CBC’s “Out in the Open” with Piya Chattopadhyay featured a great show on hidden disabilities including a segment on adult ADHD. Piya interviewed Russ LeBlanc, CADDAC’s communication/media consultant. Russ is our “go to guy” whenever we do any media outreach. Russ, a former radio host, was almost fifty years old before he was diagnosed with ADHD. He shared his feelings and experiences when first diagnosed and what happened when he disclosed that he had ADHD to family, friends and colleagues.
Russ feels the most important thing is that people understand it is real and does exist. “I term it as the Rodney Dangerfield of disorders. It gets no respect.” stated Russ.
Join us at our up-coming Adult/Adolescent ADHD Workshop this April the 9th and meet Russ.
