It's almost that time of year again! Last year's ADHD awareness workshop was very successful thanks to the participation of such an expert and distinguished keynote speaker and panel. ADHD Awareness Day 2017 will take place at the Caboto Club on Friday, October 6th. This year's theme is ADHD: Learning Differences & Lifestyle Optimization.

This year, we have the distinct pleasure of having Dr. Todd Cunningham, C.Psych., as our keynote speaker. He is a clinical psychologist and a faculty member in the Applied Psychology and Human Development department of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.

He will present a wealth of information about learning differences and how you can optimize your child's learning. Dr. Sharon Burey, Consultant Behavioural Pediatrician, will give a brief update on how lifestyle changes can help families and children with ADHD lead more successful lives. 

  • The ADHD Awareness Day event will take places on Friday, October 6th, 2017 from 9am to 1pm at the Caboto Club.
