Michael Phelps, Richard Branson, Will Smith, Albert Einstein...these are just a few of the incredibly successful people diagnosed with ADD / ADHD.


Meet us on the road!

Throughout the year, we travel all over the United States attending conferences and fairs, meeting with schools and professionals, visiting interested and alumni families, and presenting on topics related to the ADHD & LD community. Whether you are an alumni family, an interested parent, or a professional working with our population, we would love to meet you!

As we travel to these locations, we are always looking to meet with SOAR Alumni families, prospective campers and students, and professionals wanting to learn more about SOAR. Check out the travel calendar below to see when we’ll be in your area! Please contact Sidney Gilliam if you are interested in setting up a time to meet with someone from our team!
