Welcome!

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.

The new CHADD Affilliate will meet every third Thursday of the month (except December) beginning in October. 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 inaugural parent support group meeting will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2018, and we are thrilled that that Dr. Mario Cruz of Philly Fight and formerly of St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, will be our first speaker.  He will discuss ADHD diagnosis and provide an overview of ADHD.
