Welcome to CHADD of Hampton Roads (HR CHADD)!
ADHD AWARENESS SUPPORT GROUP
CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is the nation’s leading non-profit organization serving individuals with ADHD and their families. CHADD has over 16,000 members in 200 local chapters throughout the U.S.
HR CHADD offers support for individuals, parents, teachers, professionals, and others affected by or interested in ADHD.
- Advocacy…by connecting with schools and other regional and national organizations
- Education…by finding speakers who ”speak” to your needs, and by organizing monthly social and support groups
- and Outreach…by participating in community events
Each year, we have monthly meetings. You are welcome to attend one of our meetings. You don't have to join the group just to check it out, and, best of all, it's FREE! Our Meetup group maintains a calendar of events and related information for the Hampton Roads chapter.

Local Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteering for CHADD
CHADD’s dedicated volunteers play an integral part in the organization’s success by providing support, education and encouragement to parents, educators and professionals through CHADD support groups and Parent to Parent Training on ADHD. On a national level, volunteers work on various committees and the national board or directors and professional advisory board.
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:
