If you are interested in being considered for this award, please mark your abstract “Research Award Submission.”

Research Award abstracts must be received by June 1, 2018. Only online submissions will be considered.

Innovative Programs

As employers, parents, educators, and healthcare providers become more aware of the needs of adults and children with ADHD and their families, they are finding extremely creative ways of addressing these needs. Such efforts include developing new and innovative programs, modifying existing programs, accommodating the needs of the person with ADHD through individually designed working and learning environments that accommodate his or her special needs, and developing company- and community-wide collaborative models.

Individuals representing a wide array of innovative programs and services will be on hand to share information with conference attendees.

Innovative Program abstracts must be received by June 1, 2018. Only online submissions will be considered.

The Conference Committee will not be able to underwrite the expenses of presenters accepted from this call for proposals.
