Conference Program
Share |

ADDA has made an industry-wide call to ADHD experts, researchers, coaches, therapists and more for workshops and presentations on the most advanced information available on adult ADHD. Then, we assembled a jury of the most well-known and respected names in adult ADHD to select only the best proposals to include in the Adult ADHD Conference.

This is the only place you can be sure you’ll learn the most advanced research, techniques and strategies in:

  • ADHD medical management,
  • ADHD in relationships,
  • ADHD career choices,
  • Workplace strategies,
  • Organizational strategies,
  • We even have special sessions for non-ADHD partners living with an adult with ADHD!
  • And more!

If there’s a topic that will help adults with ADHD lead better lives, you can believe you’ll learn more about it at the 14th International Adult ADHD Conference. Presentations and workshops conducted by the leading names in adult ADHD today ensure this will be an unforgettable weekend!
