"Understanding ADHD" Speaker Meeting via Zoom for 2022 more info
Our "Understanding ADHD" speaker meeting is an educational gathering intended to serve the entire ADHD community. A typical meeting will include a presentation from a professional with insights on a particular aspect of living with ADHD, followed by an opportunity for discussion and Q&A. Attendees typically include parents, grandparents or caregivers of ADHD children, adults with ADHD, partners of adults with ADHD, educators, clinicians, child development specialists, and ADHD professionals. We unite to learn, connect, and discuss the challenges and solutions of living with ADHD. Adults and teens (13+, accompanied by an adult family member) are welcome. A $5-$10 tax-deductible donation is kindly requested and can be made in advance online.

 

"Parenting ADHD" Parent / Caregiver Peer Support Group via Zoom for 2022 more info
This group is a safe, supportive, and judgment-free environment for parents and caregivers of ADHD children to reflect on and share our parenting challenges and successes, learn from one another, develop new strategies and skills, and discuss local resources. To promote a safe environment for sharing, this support group is ONLY open to parents, grandparents, and caregivers of children with ADHD. Meetings are organized and facilitated by parent-volunteers with the support of ADHD professionals. Our members are connected between meetings via a private online support group, available 24/7. A $5-$10 tax-deductible donation is kindly requested and can be made in advance online.

 

“ADHD Empowerment” Adult ADHD Peer Support Group via Zoom for 2022 more info
These meetings offer a supportive, judgement-free environment where adults 18+ can reflect and share about the challenges of living with ADHD, set meaningful goals with group encouragement, and work to improve our lives. Some of us were diagnosed as children and others only recently. Some choose medication while others cannot or do not. Regardless of our differences, we come together united by our diagnosis, to speak directly with others like us who truly understand the experience of living firsthand with ADHD. To promote a safe environment for sharing, this support group is ONLY open to adults 18+ with ADHD. A $5-$10 tax-deductible donation is kindly requested and can be made in advance online. We are grateful to ADHD brain, advocate, and speaker Jessica McCabe of HowtoADHD.com for partnering with us as a founding member of this group.

CHADD MEMBERSHIP
*Although not a requirement to attend our local meetings, we urge you to consider becoming a member of CHADD for just $53 annually (and select CHADD of San Fernando Valley as your chapter). Your tax-deductible membership dues not only support CHADD's work nationally and benefit you - they also have a positive impact our chapter locally. For each new member affiliated with our chapter, we receive a modest donation from CHADD national. For that we are so grateful. Aside from that, our chapter is funded by donations collected at our meetings and from a handful of supportive community partners. Every $1 counts to support our chapter's mission of providing free or very low-cost resources to improve the lives of those in the Los Angeles area who are impacted by ADHD.

 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
