CHADD to Host International Conference on AD/HD in Anaheim, CA; Olympian Bruce Jenner to Keynote
Date:10/23/2008

Registration for Nov 14-15 Conference - including free sessions -- is now open at http://www.CHADD.org

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This November, the international grassroots organization, Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, will host its 20th annual international conference at the Anaheim Hilton, in Anaheim, CA. The three-day CHADD conference offers an exceptional opportunity to connect with parents, teachers, and individuals living with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and a chance to connect with renowned experts in the field of AD/HD.

Olympian Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Gold Medal Decathlon champion, will be this year's featured keynote speaker on Friday, November 14. Jenner, who has dyslexia and AD/HD, is very active in associations that focus on learning disabilities and children. Growing up in the 1950s and 60s, Jenner experienced firsthand the frustration of a poorly diagnosed and treated learning disability, as he struggled with reading. When he discovered sports, though, things changed. Jenner developed the skills and confidence that eventually led him to the Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada, where he was dubbed the "World's Greatest Athlete."

"We're very excited that Bruce Jenner will be giving one of the keynote addresses," said CHADD Conference co-chair Anne Teeter Ellison, EdD. "Having an Olympic sports star come to talk about his own AD/HD is very exciting for us."

With dedicated tracks for parents, educators, medical and therapeutic professionals, and special forums for international and Spanish-speaking attendees, the CHADD conference reaches across the spectrum to provide information for attendees relevant to where they are in life.

"This is the only conference where you have nationally recognized researchers, professionals, and parents coming together to explore the diagnoses and treatment of AD/HD," Ellison said.

"I look forward to the conference every year," said Donna Love. "It beats trying to read reams of literature to tease out the information that is important to me," she said. "How else could I possibly get the equivalent amount of valid information in such a brief period of time? There are excellent presentations on a wide variety of topics from which to choose. The presentations are very professional, but audience-friendly, which is important."

The Hilton Anaheim is located at 777 Convention Way. Groups and individuals interested in attending this year's conference are encouraged to visit http://www.CHADD.org for more information, or call CHADD's conference department at (301) 306-7070. On-site registration will also be available. For a complete schedule of the conference activities, please visit http://www.CHADD.org.
