We hope you like the new look of our website! We've added many new resources - take a look at our Information centre, or details about our Conferences and Training.
An important new initiative at ADDISS is the setting up of an affiliation arrangement with support groups around the UK, so that we can work together to ensure that information about ADHD is consistent, accurate and up-to-date. If you'd like to know more about affiliating to ADDISS, e-mail us for information.
Remember that if you'd like to keep up-to-date with everything that's happening at ADDISS and in the world of ADHD, you can subscribe to ADDISS and receive regular newsletters and mailings.
If you have any comments or suggestions on our new-look site, please send us your views by e-mail so that we can continue to improve this resource.
