What is Executive Function?
"Executive function refers to brain functions that activate, organize, integrate, and manage other functions. It enables individuals to account for short- and long-term consequences of their actions and to plan for those results. It also allows individuals to make real-time evaluations of their actions and make necessary adjustments if those actions are not achieving the desired result."

Founded in 2018, we are a mixture of parents, grandparents, and other caregivers of children who have ADHD and adults with ADHD. We currently meet on the third Thursday of each month via Zoom but before the pandemic, we met in West Philadelphia at CHOP's Karabots Center. We offer programming to educate individuals on how to manage and thrive with ADHD in all areas of life. We also offer support for families and individuals who need to be reminded that they are not alone as we all work to overcome the struggles ADHD tends to bring.
