Our Participants

Scent-Free Considerations

The OADD conference is a scent-free event. In consideration of those who are sensitive/allergic to the chemicals in fragrances, please refrain from using perfume/cologne and other scented products.


OADD understands that different terminology is used by different service sectors and that all of us experience labels appropriate to each situation at various times in our lives. Participant questions regarding terminology will be directed back to presenters.

Registration Fees and Presenter Attendance policy

The registration form and fees are outlined on the registration webpage.
