It’s special education week, Autism and ADHD awareness month., And this is in honor of all the children that struggle every day. According to various messages that have circulated via social media for several years, this week is “Special Education Week”.
The messages also claim that it is Autism and ADHD month.
You do not effectively raise awareness of an issue by posting misleading and inaccurate nonsense on your networks.
In truth, such messages serve only to provide participants with a fleeting feel-good moment in which they mistakenly believe that they have actually done something to help.
It thus implies that Autism and ADHD are intrinsically linked and falsely suggests that their respective awareness months occur at the same time.
