Welcome!

Welcome!

Nine years ago Elkins Park CHADD was formed by three moms sitting around a table who wanted to hold meetings to help our kids with ADHD. With the help of a small group of dedicated volunteers we have grown to support both parents of children with ADHD and adults with ADHD with monthly programs, discussion groups and a monthly social group. 

 

BuxMont CHADD offers monthly meetings for education and support for families and individuals affected by ADHD.

 

Parent Support Group: 1st Tuesday of the month, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Adult Support Group: 3rd Tuesday of the month, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Adult Social Group: 2nd Wednesday of the month, 7:00 – 9:00pm, Panera Bread, The Fairway, Jenkintown

 

Support Group Meetings are at:

Einstein Medical Center, Elkins Park

Conference Room G-1

60 Township Line Road

Elkins Park, PA 19027

All meetings are free for CHADD members. Non-members: $5.00 donation suggested. Onsite parking is free.

Email:buxmont-chadd@chadd.net (as a volunteer, I may not be able to provide immediate assistance, please see below if you need immediate assistance)

Like us on Facebook! We will be posting articles of interest to the ADHD community.

Do 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 atwww.help4adhd.org or by phone at 800-233-4050 (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).

 




Volunteer Opportunities:

To volunteer your time, please contact elkins-park@chadd.net. 

We welcome all contributions of time and skill. We are in particular need for a recording secretary for our board meetings, which are once a month at a members house, usually on a weekend afternoon. It's a great way to get involved and know more about your support group.

We are also in need of greeters at our Parents' Meetings. If you like to meet and greet people, this is a great way to get to know all the participants in our meetings. Whether you come to every meeting or most, we welcome your help.

If you are a professional in the field of ADHD and would like to volunteer to speak at an upcoming meeting, please contact us at the above e-mail.
