Consider this your personal invitation to join us next weekend (11/14/09) at ADD Resources’ Eighth Annual Fall Conference in Bellevue, Washington. The theme this year is ADHD: Acceptance is Empowering.
Knowledge is power, too, and this is a wonderfully cost-effective opportunity to both expand your knowledge of ADHD and familiarize yourself with the ADHD community in the Pacific Northwest.
Nationally known ADHD expert and psychologist Ari Tuckman (author of the new book More Attention, Less Deficit) will travel from Pennsylvania to present the morning keynote address: “Control What You Can, Let Go of the Rest.” Judging by the overflow capacity at Dr. Tuckman’s recent presentation at the CHADD conference in Cleveland, you won’t want to miss this candid, practical, and engaging expert!
Later in the day, I’ll present a keynote on “You, Me, and Adult A.D.D.: Success Strategies for Couples,” and Neil Peterson, CEO of the Edge Foundation, will speak about helping students with ADHD to reach their academic, professional, and social potential.
In between, you can choose from among these great breakout sessions:
Don Baker, MA: Therapy That Works for ADHD!
