ADDA Kicks Off AD/HD Awareness Campaign with Four Regional Conferences Beginning Sept. 29 and Series of Fall Teleclasses
Date:9/4/2007

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) knows how difficult it is for the 8 million adults who live with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). Due to a lack of awareness about AD/HD and the negative stigma surrounding it, 85 percent of these adults remain undiagnosed, leading to difficulties with family and other relationships and educational and employment challenges.

ADDA is holding four regional conferences this fall to shed light on AD/HD and present effective strategies for handling everyday challenges, in addition to offering a series of free Fall Teleclasses for members so more people can learn in the comfort of their homes.

Regional Meetings

Well-respected experts in the medical and mental health fields, as well as AD/HD professionals will discuss AD/HD symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, in addition to explaining how people can successfully cope with AD/HD in all aspects of their lives. Sessions will also provide coaches with insight into coaching for AD/HD.

The regional meetings are being held at these locations:

-- September 29, Renaissance Providence Hotel, Providence, RI

-- October 6, Marriott Downtown, San Francisco, CA

-- October 20, Crowne Plaza Hotel Atlanta-Buckhead, Atlanta, GA

-- November 3, Wyndham Hotel, Chicago, IL

Bringing together a renowned group of AD/HD experts, the regional conferences will provide unparalleled educational and networking opportunities for a diverse audience. They are appropriate for adults with AD/HD, parents with AD/HD children, educators, medical and mental health professionals, HR professionals and the general public.

Workshop topics will include but are not limited to:

-- New research about AD/HD: genetics and medications

-- Workplace challenges and strategies

-- Coaching for AD/HD

-- Time management and organization

A special teleclass series will run during Awareness Week from September 17 to September 20, followed by the Fall Teleclass Series running every Wednesday night through November 28. Here are some of the classes being offered in September:
