Join Today!


Welcome to Philadelphia CHADD, your local resource for support and information on parenting children with ADHD.  Join parents and caregivers just like you to learn parent strategies for your child with ADHD. Experts from area hospitals, medical practices, and educational centers will deliver the lastest information about ADHD treatment, advocacy, and management strategies. Most importantly, we will support each other as we navigate ADHD.

Our CHADD Affilliate will meet every third Thursday of the month October to June.

Meetings will be held at 6 p.m. at CHOP Karabots Center, 4865 Market Street in West Philadelphia in Conference Room A.  Free parking will be available.

Our theme for the next programming year 2019-2020 is:

Navigating beyond the diagnosis: Providing the tools to empower children and adolescents to manage their ADHD
