Did you know you can call in using your cell phone?
I know sometimes I don’t “feel” have the time or mental energy to “sit in front of the computer. Or maybe you have been in front of the computer all day and “ Feel all Zoomed out!”
You can still participate by phone. We want to support you in a way that works for you!
Here is the -One tap mobile number.
(if using this link it will automatically enter the meeting ID and password for you! BUT it is still NOT smart enough not to ask...just wait a second after it asks and it will start beeping! YES! It took me so many times of frustration before I realized it was doing it for me when I heard the beeps, I thought I was too slow and I just hung up and quit!)
Or another reason to use the phone is if you do not have stable internet connection dialing in will keep you from “breaking up”

CHADD Local Support Groups and Affiliates Need Your Support
CHADD has local support groups in every state in the United States. Each group offers programming or information specific to their geographic area. These groups offer assistance for parents, children, young adults, adults and other stakeholders (psychologists, teachers, doctors, etc.). These groups provide advocacy, support, networking and information to those affected by AD/HD in their communities.
Ways you can support these efforts are as follows:
Donate to this effort
Contact your local CHADD group to advocate for support groups
Contact your school district to host and support newly forming or current groups
Contact your local community foundation or other foundations in your area to support this effort
