Subject: ADDA Offers Teleclasses on AD/HD

Learn How To Cope With Adult AD/HD With ADDA's Spring Teleclasses Starting April 16: Knowledge Is Only A Phone Call Away

MT. LAUREL, NJ – While most people think of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) as a concern for parents with hyperactive children, more than 9 million adults in the U.S. live with this disorder.

For these adults dealing with the daily stresses of work, family and relationships can sometimes seem overwhelming. But this spring help is on the way from the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA)!

Beginning April 16, ADDA is offering a series of 12 teleclasses, open to anyone with a telephone and a willingness to learn, that will present effective strategies for handling these everyday challenges. The hour-long teleclasses are free for ADDA members and $10 per class for non-members.

Teleclass participants will learn ADD-friendly ways to organize their lives, discover how to be more productive at work and be able to ask questions from medical and AD/HD professionals about any aspect of AD/HD.

Well-respected experts in the medical and mental health fields, as well as AD/HD professionals that work with adults with AD/HD will explain how people can successfully cope with issues in the workplace, in college, and in relationships, as well as explore parenting from an AD/HD perspective. Teleclasses are appropriate for adults with AD/HD, parents with AD/HD children, educators, medical and mental health professionals, other AD/HD professionals and interested members of the general public.

Registration is now open online at www.add.org for the teleclasses.
