I attended CADDAC’s 2014 conference.

I also did a 3 part blog post on their Vancouver ADD Network meeting before the conference. Part one, part two and part three.

I would highly recommend attending CADDAC’s ADHD conference.

Please share this information with your doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, teacher or BC Liberal or BC NDP MLA to get them to open more adult ADHD clinics in all areas of BC for all ages and children’s ones too and stop discriminating against us in K-12, BC got a grade of Fail in CADDAC’s ADHD school report card.
