Parents, teachers and others concerned about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as the use of medications in schools, are encouraged to attend.

The task force was established by the General Assembly to analyze the issue. Public hearings have been held around the state, and the task force is expected to present its findings at the conference.
