There will be no CHADD meeting in April. However, we are excited to announce that beginning in May, CHADD meetings will be on the FIRST Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:30 pm. We will be meeting over at Nemours on the 10th floor. As we previously announced, we can no longer use the Ronald McDonald House for our meetings. We are so grateful to them for their past support, however they are beginning a construction project that limits their ability to have outside groups use the facility. We truly appreciate your understanding as we've worked to get things in order. We were taken by surprise by the need to move, but this is ultimately going to be great for our organization. We look forward to seeing you in May!
If you put your email on our sign in sheet, you will receive a reminder email about the upcoming meeting. If you would like to be added to our distribution list, go to the "Contact Us" page and email Melissa.

Do you need immediate assistance?
As a volunteer, I may not be able to get back to you if you need immediate assistance. If you are seeking information for something that is time-sensitive (such as an IEP/Section 504 meeting at your child’s school), or are looking for a local professional with AD/HD expertise, please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on AD/HD (NRC), online at www.help4adhd.org or by phone toll-free at 800-233-4050 (press option 2, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern time). The NRC is staffed by trained health information professionals who can answer many of your questions about AD/HD and provide other helpful information and resources. (NOTE: the NRC does not provide legal or medical advice, but can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).
CHADD does not endorse or represent products, services, publication, medications or treatments. Meetings are free and open to the public, although membership with CHADD is strongly encouraged, since your local group will receive a portion of your dues to continue supporting your community.
If you would like to volunteer your talents to this group, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com
