ADDA Programs to Serve You

ADDA Ambassadors

The ADDA Ambassadors are a group of volunteer ADDA members who want to extend the truly life-changing experience of connecting with your “tribe” and make it last all year long. They want to connect with you, and help you connect with others and stay connected.  The ADDA Ambassadors program reach out to all ADDA members by telephone. If you’re an ADDA member and you haven’t heard from an ADDA Ambassador yet, you can even request a call.

ADDA Virtual Peer Support Groups and Workshops

Several new series of ADDA Virtual Peer Support Groups and Virtual Workshops  are getting underway in 2016. If you’d like to meet with other adults with ADHD without leaving the comfort and privacy of your home, ADDA Virtual Groups offer ADDA members the opportunity to connect with peers for support in a safe non-judgmental environment.

ADDA Workplace Issues Committee

Most adults who face challenges with their ADHD find it most daunting in the workplace.  This is not to say it’s not an issue in other areas of their lives, but when you’re struggling to keep up at work, working long hours and suffering anxiety because you know you’re not delivering up to your potential, you rarely have the time or energy left over to worry about other areas of your life that might be falling apart. Learn how ADDA’s Workplace Issues Committee is working to help you and people like you with ADHD succeed in today’s workplace.
