Welcome!

About South Central Alaska CHADD: 

The support group is managed by a group of dedicated volunteers.  

Meetings are FREE, however CHADD groups are financially supported by memberships and donations, so we kindly ask you to consider joining CHADD to help support our mission of improving the lives of those affected by ADHD.  Your CHADD membership or donation will help support our group.

Do you need information and resource help? As volunteers, we 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 800-233-4050 (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).


Community resources and national resources:  We have a list of local non-profit organizations, national organizations and CHADD professional and organizational members who have requested to be in our directory in the area in the links section.


Our Programs and Services:

 

  • Speaker Presentations & Support Groups:  We currently offer two free support groups.  One is for parents/caregivers and one is for adults affected by AD/HD.  Currently, we are not able to provide child care at our meetings. Since group members may be sharing frank information about their challenges, some of the discussions may not be appropriate for children to attend. 

    Donations (tax deductible) and CHADD membership fees are accepted at the door.
