PHILADELPHIA – The first National ADHD Youth Leadership Summit is a program of ADHD Aware, the 1st non-profit run by and for people with ADHD, and aims to empower children with ADHD. By joining a community of other people with ADHD, and taking part in leadership activities, the Summit will help children with ADHD learn strategies for success while celebrating their uniqueness. The Summit also offers separate parent workshops given by nationally recognized experts. Speakers include Dr. Patricia Quinn, Dr. Anthony Rostain, Dr. Russell Ramsey and many other luminaries in the field.
ADHD Aware is proud to offer scholarships for one parent and one child to attend the first National ADHD Youth Leadership Summit. The scholarships will include admission for one parent/guardian and one child, and for families coming from out of town, travel expenses for both and a hotel stay at the Sheraton University City in Philadelphia. The summit empowers children with ADHD to celebrate their uniqueness, learn leadership skills, meet others like them and learn strategies for success.

Run by and for people with ADHD, our purpose is to empower children, adults and families affected by ADHD, educate those who impact us, and enlighten all people as to the courage and competence of our singular community. A 501c3 nonprofit, ADHD Aware was founded with the conviction that our needs are unique, substantial, and worthy of attention. We provide dynamic programming responsive to the diverse populations affected by ADHD and, through outreach and direct engagement, seek to increase public and professional understanding regarding the diagnosis and effective treatment for ADHD and to decrease social stigmas associated with it.
