Jonathan Mooney: Dyslexia and ADHD

5th Annual ADHD Symposium

On Saturday, March 23rd, over 150 clinicians, educators, parents, caregivers, and adults with ADHD attended the 5th Annual ADHD Symposium at Chesapeake Bay Academy (CBA). Jonathan Mooney, award-winning writer, entrepreneur, and activist, presented as the keynote speaker and shared his struggles, triumphs, and insights on how to navigate life when faced with adversity due to a learning difference. Following the keynote, attendees had the opportunity to attend two breakout sessions based on their area of interest. Thank you to all who attended, presented at, and supported the event.

Our annual ADHD symposium featuring world-renowned keynote speakers followed by breakouts sessions for parents/caregivers, clinicians, educators, and adults with ADHD is made possible thanks to a continued partnership with Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CKHD). By popular request, we have made speaker presentations, when available, accessible online.
