ADDA Kicks Off AD/HD Awareness Campaign with Regional Meeting on Oct. 20 in Atlanta, GA
Date:10/10/2007

ATLANTA, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) knows how difficult it can be 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 this disorder, 85 percent of these adults remain undiagnosed, leading to difficulties with family and other relationships and educational and employment problems.

In order to provide hope for these adults living in the dark, ADDA is holding four regional meetings this fall to shed light on this disorder and present effective strategies for handling these everyday challenges.

The next meeting is being held Oct. 20 in Atlanta, GA.

When: Saturday, October 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Where: Crowne Plaza Altanta-Buckhead, 3377 Peachtree Road, N.E.,

Atlanta, GA

A special networking event for AD/HD professionals will be held Friday, October 19 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Buckhead.

Well-respected experts in the medical and mental health fields, as well as AD/HD professionals will provide facts about 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.

Dr. Robert Doyle will give a keynote address on Diagnosing and Treating the Adult AD/HD: Advances in Adult Arena, and Judith Goldberg and Yvonne Pennington, PhD will also present at the meeting, along with other well-known experts.

Bringing together a renowned group of AD/HD experts, the regional meetings 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, other AD/HD professionals and interested members of the general public.

Registration is now open online at http://www.add.org. Workshop topics will include:
