For over 100 years, Dale Carnegie has supported communities to transform the lives and career potential of people through human relationship skill-building. For the past four years, we have rallied behind the Global Day of Giving initiative, a day our network honors our founder, Dale Carnegie, by delivering special programs to selected not-for-profit and charitable organizations that focus on youth development and to educators who work with the youth.
This year, we partnered with CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) in Orange County and delivered a workshop on “Communicating with Emotional Intelligence”. CHADD was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by those looking for information about AD/HD. It has been thought that ADHD is a simple childhood condition. Many people seriously misunderstand ADHD, even that it lasts into adulthood. Many clinicians and educators know little about recognizing ADHD and individuals with ADHD are often mistakenly labeled “behavior problems,” “unmotivated,” “unintelligent,” “willful” or even “stubborn.”
