Dear Colleagues,

In my role as President of the World Federation of ADHD, I’ve convened an international team from regional ADHD professional groups to prepare an International Consensus Statement that cogently summarizes the highest quality, evidenced-based assertions we can make about ADHD.

We will publish it as an open-access paper with the hope that it will be disseminated widely to reduce stigma, correct misconceptions and educate the world about the disorder.

We are inviting colleagues to register their support for this evidence base and to forward this invitation to others as you see fit. If you are interested to do so, you will need this information:

Thank you for considering this request.
