RESOURCES and MEMBERSHIP
Do you need information and resource help? As a volunteer, we try to respond as quickly as possible to all requests about our local CHADD group.
However, if you have a more pressing need for information or assistance about the many aspects of dealing with AD/HD (including diagnosis, treatment options, educational rights, etc.), please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on AD/HD (NRC), online at www.help4adhd.org or by phone at 800-233-4050 (press option 2, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern time).
The NRC is staffed by trained Health Information Specialists who can answer many of your questions about AD/HD and provide other helpful information and resources. (NOTE: although the NRC does not provide legal, medical or other professional advice, Specialists can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).
Community resources and national resources: We have a list of local non-profit organizations, national organizations and CHADD professional and organizational members who have requested to be in our directory in the area in the links section.
Donations (tax deductible) and CHADD membership fees

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
