25th Annual International Conference On ADHD
November 7–9, 2013
Hyatt Regency, Crystal City
The CHADD Annual International Conference is the major research, practice and public information conference dedicated to ADHD. Conference sessions will focus on providing current science-based information and the impact of this information on treatments for individuals with ADHD. The conference will bring together researchers, clinicians, educators, adults, parents, and others. Major goals for the conference are to disseminate the latest developments in research; to facilitate an ongoing exchange about issues related to ADHD by individuals with different experiences and viewpoints; and to increase public understanding of the disorder and its impact.
Proposals for presentations are invited. Empirical studies and best practices science-based intervention strategies are preferred. These can include, but are not limited to, collaborative practices, learning differences, implementation of IDEA and Section 504, advocacy empowerment, research, educational interventions, inclusion, parent training, multimodal treatment issues particular to distinct populations (i.e., age, gender, ethnicity, etc.), co-existing conditions, diagnosis and treatment, and innovative programs. Of special interest are presentations that address smoking and cultural diversity. These proposals will be organized by tracks—common topics of interest—that foster exchange, debate and dialogue among mental health professionals, educators, physicians, families, adults with ADHD and other conference attendees.

Such efforts include developing new and innovative programs; modifying existing programs; accommodating the needs of the child and adult through individually designed learning environments that highlight his or her special needs, and developing community-wide collaborative models.
Individuals representing a wide array of innovative programs and services will be on hand to share information with conference attendees.
