The Howard County Public School System is hosting its Seventh Annual ADHD Awareness Evening Monday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. at Centennial High School in Ellicott City.

This year’s event will feature Richard Guare, a clinical neuropsychologist and expert on diagnosis and intervention for children and adults with ADHD, learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorders. He is currently the director of the Center for Learning and Attention Disorders at Seacoast Mental Health Center in New Hampshire and has co-authored several books.

Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to learn about organizational skills, attention and emotional control and the role those skills play with students and strategies to improve them, according to a release from the school system.

The event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the school system, CHADD of Greater Baltimore, the Learning Disability Association of America Howard County Chapter and Individual Differences in Learning.
