ADHD? Who Me?

A graduate of the University of Waterloo (BSc, Physics), Rick Green was named a Science Alumni of Honour in 2007. Rick started his career creating and presenting public demonstrations at the Ontario Science Centre. In 1980 he became a full-time comedy writer, performer, and director. He went on to create 700 episodes of TV and radio, including The Red Green Show, History Bites, Prisoners of Gravity, and The Frantics. His work has won numerous entertainment and educational awards.

Diagnosed with ADHD at age 47, Rick realized, 'Finally understanding how my mind works has been life-changing.' Working with his wife Ava (a video editor and producer), Rick created an award-winning documentary, ADD & Loving It?! the story of fellow comedian Patrick McKenna getting diagnosed in midlife. This program, and the sequel, ADD & Mastering It!, became long-running hits on PBS and inspired the creation of TotallyADD.com. Here Rick taps into the knowledge of 70 specialists (doctors, researchers, coaches, authors, and educators) to offer real solutions while busting myths and stigma. All with humour and humanity.

Recently appointed to the Order of Ontario for his work around Adolescent & Adult ADHD, Rick is on the Patient Advisory Committee of the Province of Ontario Neurodevelopmental Disorders Network and the Ontario Brain Institute.

Message from the Co-Chairs

It is our pleasure to return as Co-Chairs of this primary fundraiser for LDAO, especially in the eleventh year of the event. We are pleased to welcome our key sponsors, notably Scotiabank, EY, Heathbridge Capital Management, C.J. Graphics and The Co-operators. We can't thank them enough for their help and as a result of their continued support, we have now raised over $1,000,000 from this annual event. We hope that you also will support the 11th Annual LDAO Awareness Breakfast by joining these sponsors or purchasing a table. The cause is worthy indeed.

Our guest speaker, Rick Green, will share his personal journey that started with his diagnosis of ADHD as an adult. This diagnosis positively changed his life and he even attributes his success to his ADHD. His story hasn't been without struggle but it is one of inspiration. Not only will you be entertained, but you will also learn and walk away with valuable insight and information about what it's like to live with ADHD.

Regardless if you're a parent, uncle, grandparent, niece or employer, you will benefit from this frank conversation while supporting a great cause.

We look forward to seeing you there!
