April 16, 2016 is Ed rev. This year’s theme is “a day to think a little differently” with keynote speaker and author of World War Z, Max Brooks! Ed Rev celebrates the LD (Learning Disability) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) communities. It is a day to recognize our talents, challenges, civil rights and to foster self-esteem and empowerment of our community.
Gearing up for Ed Rev we are going to bring the party online! All this week and at Ed Rev we will take to social media with the Facebook/Twitter/Instagram hashtag #ThinkDifferently to celebrate our community. Whether you are an individual with LD/ADHD, family member or advocate, join us in showing your pride and educating others about LD/ADHD. Post pictures, artwork, videos, blogs and whatever else to show how you #ThinkDifferently or want others to #ThinkDifferently about LD/ADHD. .
