NRCDo you need information and resource help?
 As a volunteer, I try to respond as quickly as possible to all requests about our local CHADD group.

However, if you have a more pressing need for information or assistance about the many aspects of dealing with ADHD (including diagnosis, treatment options, educational rights, etc.), please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on ADHD (NRC), online at www.help4adhd.org or by phone at 800-233-4050800-233-4050 (press option 2, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern time).  

The NRC is staffed by trained Health Information Specialists who can answer many of your questions about ADHD and provide other helpful information and resources.  (NOTE: although the NRC does not provide legal, medical or other professional advice, specialists can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).
