Celebrities Inspire Kids for LD, ADHD and Dyslexia Awareness Month

October is LD Awareness Month, ADHD Awareness Month and Dyslexia Awareness Month. This year, in order to raise awareness about these common issues (1 in 5 kids has learning and attention issues!) Understood brought together celebrities with ADHD and dyslexia to inspire and encourage kids who also are part of the 1 in 5.

Watch as some of your favorite celebrities, including Gavin Newsom (who has dyslexia), Simone Biles (who has ADHD) and Diamond Dallas Page (who has both), discuss their challenges and connect with kids who are following in their footsteps.
