PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: What conferences should I attend as an executive function coach? (2024)

I recently received this question from an enrollee of our executive function coaching certification program.

Are there any seminars/workshops/conferences that you recommend I attend to learn and grow more? I am very open to traveling to some as well. I guess my question is, where would I find these events and how can I sign up?

Exploring opportunities for personal and professional development is crucial for anyone looking to expand their knowledge and network.

Whether you're eager to connect with others in your field, discover innovative strategies for growth, or simply find inspiration for your next big idea, attending well-curated events can be transformative.

Here are some top recommendations for seminars, workshops, and conferences that are definitely worth considering:

1. The Annual ADHD Conference

An indispensable gathering for professionals focusing on ADHD, executive function skills, and more. This year, the conference is set to take place in Anaheim, November.

It's an excellent opportunity to meet fellow providers, learn from leading experts, and engage with a community dedicated to understanding and supporting ADHD.
