2017 CHADD/ADDA Annual International Conference on ADHD in Atlanta

Dear All, 


I am sending you information about the 2017 CHADD/ADDA International Conference on ADHD, which will be in Atlanta, GA November 9-12.  Please distribute widely.  This is a wonderful opportunity to train individuals, staff, parents and adults in GA about ADHD.


This ADHD Conference can be used to train teachers and special education staff, police departments, justice office staff, hospital staff, Dr. offices, etc.  Please print and put in Dr. offices, give to patients, send to schools; Colleges; teachers; Principals; School Districts Spec. Ed. Departments; PTA/PTO’s; Private Schools; clinics; hospitals; disability organizations; disability groups and FB pages; mental health agencies; police departments; etc.


This year, the ADHD conference will be a joint effort between CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADDA (Attention Deficit Disorder Association) and we are expanding our programming. For example, we have more sessions per day, and we have been adding talks on teens and young adults, particularly for issues related to post-secondary education. We also have added a half day on Sunday that is just for adults with ADHD.


We would greatly appreciate any support you can provide to help promote the conference. I have attached a joint press release from Michael MacKay, the president of CHADD and Duane Gordon, president of ADDA, as well as the conference artwork, which could be added to your website/e-mail. Please spread the word through all of your networks?


Here’s a link to the registration page for the conference: Please use it to register yourself, and share it with others.


Also support these wonderful organizations with your membership.   &  


Thanks for any support you can provide to promote!
