Welcome!


Hello from the South Bay Chapter of CHADD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects our lives in different ways. Symptoms are not the same for everyone and can appear differently over time. The best advice often comes from those who have "been there"...those of us who live with ADHD. Sharing, talking and networking with other ADHD adults and parents with ADHD children and teens and young adults, is a good way to learn about this "difference" and, more importantly, to learn that we are not alone. Our Chapter has dedicated itself to providing programs to help us all to better understand this "difference" which affects our lives and our families.

Our programs include a SPEAKER SERIES PROGRAM, an ADULT SUPPORT GROUP and a  TEEN SUPPORT GROUP

The  TEEN SUPPORT GROUP meets on Wednesday evenings, from 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm.  Kyle Glassman, MA MFT is our Teen facilitator. Please note: June 28th will be the last Teen Group meeting before Summer Break and will resume in September, 2017 (Date TBA).  

The ADULT SUPPORT GROUP meets every Wednesday evening from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm Justine Ruotolo, MA MFT and ADHD coach, is our Adult facilitator. Please note: The Adult Group will continue to meet through the summer months.

The  ADULT and TEEN SUPPORT GROUP meetings are held at The Center for Learning Unlimited (CLU), 2785 Pacific Coast Hwy, Suite G, Torrance, CA. 90505.

Do you need immediate assistance? 


As a volunteer, I may not be able to get back to you if you need immediate assistance. 

If you are seeking information for something that is time-sensitive (such as an IEP/Section 504 meeting at your child’s school), or are looking for a local  professional with AD/HD expertise, please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on AD/HD (NRC), online at http://www.help4adhd.org/ or by phone toll-free at 800-233-4050 (press option 2, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern time). 

The NRC is staffed by trained health information professionals who can answer many of your questions about AD/HD and provide other helpful information and resources. (NOTE: the NRC does not provide legal or medical advice, but can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).


CHADD does not endorse or represent products, services, publication, medications or treatments. Meetings are free and open to the public, although membership with CHADD is strongly encouraged, since your local group will receive a portion of your dues to continue supporting your community.
