See You in Seattle Next Saturday, 11/14/09: ADD Resources Conference

ADD Resources

Consider this your personal invitation to join us next weekend (11/14/09) at ADD Resources 8th Annual Fall Conference in Bellevue, Washington.  The theme this year is ADHD: Acceptance is Empowering.

Knowledge is power, too.  This is a wonderfully cost-effective opportunity to expand your knowledge of ADHD—and get to know the ADHD community in the Pacific Northwest.

I’ll present a keynote on “You, Me, and Adult A.D.D.: Success Strategies for Couples.”

Note: On September 12, 2010, I will be co-presenting with Don Baker, MD, a workshop for Adult ADHD couples and individuals.
