2018 Annual International Conference on ADHD


The biggest ADHD conference of the year is now even better. Last year, ADDA joined CHADD and this year we welcome the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO) into an even bigger and better conference that has something for everyone. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Annual International Conference on ADHD.  Our theme of “Together we can…Together we will” represents the coming together of these three organizations and the coming together of the more than 1,000 attendees who bring their wisdom, questions, stories, laughs, and tears for an experience like no other.

Together we can provide an incredible variety of ways to connect, learn and collaborate…Together we will open up the general conference on Thursday afternoon with a reception in the exhibit hall for everyone, followed by our first keynote and then 3 days of non-stop opportunities.  There will be general sessions filled with speakers on a wide variety of topics, research symposia, opportunities to connect with friends new and old, new peer support meet-ups, a film screening, a talent show, time for physical activity, coach speed-dating… If you have loved this conference before, you will love it even more with the additions that we have made.

Together we can…Together we will gather in St. Louis to connect, learn and collaborate!  We can’t wait to see you there.
