PREMIER SCREENINGS OF ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER DOCUMENTARY
In celebration of National Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day, Second Thought Productions and Lion and the Lamb Entertainment will hold two screenings of the new documentary Attention Deficit Disorder: Life at a Different Pace on Wednesday, September 19.
A free screening will be provided at Selby Library, 1331 First St., at 1:00 pm and a second screening will be held at Four Gee's Café, 3615 Webber Street, at 7:30 pm with an admission price of $5.00 (10% of proceeds to benefit Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder - CHADD). Both screenings will include a question and answer period with the director and subject of the film, Steve McAllister.
Attention Deficit Disorder: Life at a Different Pace is the story of one man's search for meaning after being diagnosed with a neurological disorder at the age of twenty-nine. Commonly known as a children's disorder, ADD is seen in a new light as Steve McAllister (author of The Rucksack Letters) interviews a bevy of mental health care professionals in an exhaustive exploration of one of the most prevalent mental disorders of our time. Using the diagnosis as a springboard to understanding, Steve seeks out the strengths of ADD to forge a path of hope for a generation of children and adults who have been affected by this disorder.
