                  Please note:  There are no July or August meetings.  See you in September!

                        Chester County/Main Line CHADD Needs YOU!  

Chester County/Main Line CHADD is excited to announce the launch of its 21st year!  We extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Marie Paxson and Kathy Adams-House for their many years of dedication to our chapter. We are fortunate to have a new team of talented coordinators to take the helm.  As of July 1st, Sheila Grant and Kelly Cavanagh will lead the chapter in providing information, advocacy and support to our community.

In addition to the change in leadership, we would also like to inform you about some needs and changes in our operation.    CHADD is a volunteer organization, and we need YOU!    To help Chester County/Main Line CHADD continue to support families and individuals with ADHD, we need your talents and skills.  

Opportunities to Volunteer:  No professional experience required 

We need to build our volunteer base; you can volunteer as much or as little as you like!

* Help with publicity and outreach

* Special Projects: event planning, technology assistance, web site maintenance

* Meeting facilitators for support  groups

* Board members

* Bring your unique talents and abilities to our group!

New board members should have the ability to attend a monthly board meeting.  You will be trained and mentored by other board members, and in return you will be introduced to a great group of new friends who are passionate about helping those with ADHD.  If you are interested in more information about volunteering, we encourage you to contact Sheila Grant at 610-429-4060.

Along with the change in leadership and our need for new volunteers, we have streamlined the number of meetings so that we can provide the same high level of quality with our current volunteer staff.  We would love to expand our offerings in 2015 and look to you as our future volunteers to help make that happen.

Stay tuned for details on our upcoming season of events! 

Sincerely, 

Sheila Grant and Kelly Cavanagh

If you have a question about AD/HD that needs a response

Our chapter is managed by a group of dedicated volunteers and are unable to respond to immediate requests for assistance.  If you are seeking information for a time-sensitive event, like an IEP meeting, please contact CHADD's National Resource Center on AD/HD at 800-233-4050, press 2 (9-5:00 weekdays).  You can also go to www.help4adhd.org for additional AD/HD information.  You can download our "What We Know" sheets and find answers to "frequently asked questions".

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.


Volunteer Opportunities:

We are always looking for volunteers for short-term and long-term activities.  We would like help with our annual February conference at West Chester University, our outreach activities (health fairs and expos), and we need another helper for publicity.  Be a part of team that is knowledgeable about ADHD, tuned into area resources, dedicated to helping others....and knows how to have some fun along the way!  

Call us at 610-429-4060 if you are interested in learning more about ways to help our CHADD chapter.
