CHADD Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) is a national non-profit organization founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with AD/HD.   CHADD Works to Improve the Lives of People with Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder through Education, Advocacy, and Support.  
Many individuals and families dealing with AD/HD turn to CHADD, the national organization representing individuals with AD/HD, for education, advocacy and support. The organization is composed of dedicated volunteers from around the country who play an integral part in the association's success by providing resources and encouragement to parents, educators and professionals on a grassroots level through CHADD chapters. 
CHADD is a dynamic organization that can make a difference in your life, whether you are seeking help for yourself, a child, other family members or a friend.
