If you received notices that it is Special
Education Week & Autism and ADHD Awareness month,
you have been misled. We’re not sure why someone
would pull a hoax like this, but it is a hoax.
As of 2010 the Office of Special Education
Programs at the U.S. Department of Education knew
of no such animal. There may be something on a
state or local level, but there is nothing found on
a national level.
It is also not Autism Awareness Month or ADHD
Month although both do exist. Autism Awareness
Month occurs each April, and ADHD Awareness Month
takes place in October.
All that being said, there is nothing wrong with
honoring the children who struggle. Just remember
to also do it during the correct times.
So if you come across something that asks you to
share, or post something on your Facebook page
just be aware that even though you have good
intentions, this is not the real deal.
