CHADD – A Non-Profit Organization

Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), is a national non-profit, tax-exempt [Section 501(c)(3)] organization providing education, advocacy and support for individuals with ADHD.

CHADD does not endorse, recommend, or make representations with respect to the research, services, medication, treatments or products.

CHADD believes that information about products, services, publications, medications and treatments should be made available to its members so they can make informed decisions for themselves and their families. As such, CHADD does not endorse products, services, publication, medications or treatments.

Our local group

Local professionals, such as psychologists, coaches, and physicians, will help teach teens about ADHD and skills to use to overcome common challenges.

Teens will offer support to one another as they learn about themselves and ADHD.
