ADHD Facts, Fun in Toronto CADDAC Conference May 30-31

ADHD in Canada

I (Gina Pera) am eagerly anticipating CADDAC’s first-ever Two-Day ADHD Conference & Comedy Night— ADHD: ALL IN THE FAMILY. (That’s right, a comedy night fund-raiser…what a concept!)
Please note: This event took place in 2019. But check out the Canadian non-profit that has long organized annual conferences: The Center for ADHD Awareness, Canada (CADDAC)

Featured Speaker: Dr. Russell Barkley

This is a great opportunity to learn from Dr. Russell Barkley, an internationally recognized authority on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in children and adults.

Comedy Night

CADDAC hosts the Comedy Night Fund Raiser on Saturday, May 30, 2009, featuring Rick Green, from the Red Green Show and History Bites, as Master of Ceremonies and Patrick McKenna from Traders and the Red Green Show. The comedy troupe “The Gents” will be performing their entire 90 minute show Why Men Do What They Do.

Other Workshop Speakers

Something for Everyone

This conference is geared toward parents, adults & adolescents with ADHD as well as their partners (the whole fam damily, as it were) and treating professionals. From speakers who are nationally and internationally renowned, you’ll learn the most current information on all types of ADHD and concrete strategies on how to successfully cope with symptoms throughout the lifespan.

  • Saturday, May 30th will be geared towards parents and professionals interested in childhood and adolescent ADHD and Parenting.

    My husband and I would like to register for the ADHD event on Sat & Sun. May 30-31st. Where do we do this?

    1. Hi Star,

      So sorry. That event took place in 2009. The blog post shows that date, but it’s tiny so maybe you missed it.


  2. I am so excited about this, Gina! My husband and I will be there in the front row. This is a great opportunity to learn from Dr. Barkley, too. Thanks for doing this!
