World Congress on ADHD

adhd congress

Register now for the 9th World Congress on ADHD. This year’s theme is Modernising the concept of ADHD.

The World Federation of ADHD brings together a professional community and their regional ADHD associations:

“We aim to disseminate education about ADHD and advocate for patients and their families. Enabling world experts to teach clinicians, researchers and other ADHD stakeholders how to use scientific facts and clinical wisdom to create better outcomes for people with ADHD.”

The association was founded in 2007 at the 1st International Congress, which was held in Würzburg, Germany.

Why is the ADHD Congress important?

Despite the pandemic and the limitations it placed in in-person meetings, the science and practice of ADHD has continued to develop at a rapid pace. From clinically relevant findings in genetics and epidemiology to the emergence of novel therapeutics. There is much to share at the 9th World Congress of ADHD, which will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 18 – 21 May 2023.

In addition to disseminating innovations about which we all need to learn, they will also highlight the World Federation of ADHD’s International Consensus Statement on ADHD and its implications for diagnostics and therapeutics. This document was prepared by an international team of 37 authors representing 20 countries and six continents with the goal of communicating the basic uncontested facts about ADHD to patients, parents, clinicians, policymakers and other stakeholders. We hope it will educate the world and reduce the stigma for ADHD patients and their families.

The Scientific and Organizing Committee will prepare a wide range of topics to appeal to clinicians and researchers. We are certain these will be both educational and useful. Many will leave with new ideas about how to care for patients with ADHD or how to make meaningful progress in your research efforts.

And let’s not forget that Amsterdam is a wonderful destination for those who also wish to enjoy its remarkable architecture, art and historical venues. It is very well connected internationally with easy accessibility and with no visa limitations. Learn from world-class researchers and clinicians and to share and exchange experiences with your colleagues from around the world.
