May We Introduce You To: ADHD Paloozas 2022
by Lee Gehrls R&D Coordinator (Volunteer)
For a number of you, the phrase “Annual ADHD Palooza Conferences” will sound familiar, and it’s never too early to look forward to this year’s events. The first one will be in February, followed by the last week in July, and finally next December. Here’s a brief summary on each of these virtual events and a reminder to mark your calendars now. Here, find the overarching website for all three Palooza’s.
ADHD Women’s Palooza – February 2022
Linda Roggli and Terry Matlen co-created the first Women’s ADHD Palooza in 2016. These are both names you have heard of as they were a part of the movement to get the medical and psychology worlds to recognize that ADHD was very different for women and impaired women more than men.
Both have ADHD and are enthusiastic about helping women get the best ADHD information, ADHD resources, and ADHD support possible.
Linda’s background includes:
- ADHD coach
- Founder of ADDiva for women 40 and better
- Contributor to ADDitude Magazine
- Host of ADDA webinars
Terry’s background includes:
- ADHD coach specializing in working with adults and has a special focus on working with women
- National speaker on ADHD
- Founder and director of ADD Consults along with four other websites
Over the years Linda has had other hosts who have helped her on the annual virtual event. You do have to register online. (That goes for all of the Paloozas.)
The basic format of the Palooza is the same every year: around 30 experts in the field of ADHD give webinars for a week on the special issues and challenges that women face daily with their ADHD. All of the events will have the online webinar, an audio replay, notes (so you don’t have to take any), and maybe a special bonus gift from the presenter. If you can’t watch at the time of the live event, you have 24 hours after the event to watch the replay for free.
There is also the option to purchase the entire package at a reasonable rate. On the last day of the Palooza there is a special closing – the Pink Ticket Event – you purchase your ticket and the participants come together virtually for a special time of sharing and learning.
ADHD Parents’ Palooza – July 2022
The ADHD Parents’ Palooza began in 2018 and was hosted by Linda Roggli of ADDiva and Impact Parents co-founders: Diane Dempster, CPC, PCC, MHSA, Parent Coach; and Elaine Taylor-Klaus, CPCC, PCC, Parent Coach. This is held the last week of July and is a timely way to get into the back-to-school mode. It’s the same format as the Women’s Palooza and operated the same way. Last year they made a change by pairing two presenters for an interesting discussion on a specific aspect of ADHD in children. Here is the link you can use to take a look at all of the 2021 presenters and their topics.
ADHD Couples’ Palooza – December 2022
ADHD Couples’ Palooza was a new addition to the Palooza series this year and was held over a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, the first weekend of December. It was a unique event for couples to learn about their special issues and challenges they have with ADHD in their relationship. Again the format was the same and operated the same way. You can check out the link and take a look at the speakers and the topics they covered. This is sure to become an annual event.
I want to encourage you to spend some time on each of the past Paloozas and take a look at how they are set up, the speakers, and the timely topics they covered. Be sure to check out the extra information in the Shop for a look at all of the bonus topics.
We will post the events on our Event Calendar on our website as soon as we get the latest information.
The hosts of the Paloozas always offer new ideas and information on ADHD and they present the topics in new and creative ways so you won’t get bored. These three special conferences are an easy, fun, and positive approach to learning more about specific areas of ADHD so we all can continue to be life-long learners on how to manage it daily and have successful and fulfilling lives.
