My name is Robert Tudisco. I am a disability attorney/advocate, nonprofit consultant and motivational speaker. I am also an adult diagnosed with ADHD. My diagnosis was a major turning point in my personal and professional life. I struggled in many ways as a child before my diagnosis and believe that the work I do now gives many children and adults a voice to help others understand our frustrations, our challenges and that we are not better or worse, but just different in the way we think and process information. I have been extremely open about my ADHD, because I believe in the importance of raising awareness in order to educate the public and to confront stigma.
Running and biking are an important part of a multi-modal way that I manage my ADHD, and are as important to me as the medication that I take. There is much research to show the benefit that exercise has on brain function and specifically attention related disorders. Over the last few years, I've competed in a number of events to raise awareness and funding for various charities that positively impact the disability community. Competing for a cause has been a great way to merge my passion to provide a voice for others in the disability community and my passion for running and biking as a way to enhance my life. It also raises much needed resources and awareness about the issues impacting this community.
I encourage all of you to join my efforts. We are all stakeholders in our community, but I am challenging everyone reading my profile to become more than a stakeholder. Become an ACTIVE AGENT OF CHANGE by making a donation, or by getting out there and competing in an event of your own.
