Louisiana Capital Area CHADD

A volunteer support and advocacy group for those dealing with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

****August Meeting Cancelled****

As so much of Louisiana struggles to dig out from the historic flooding, many members have contacted me to ask about our Back-to-School meeting that was scheduled to take place this Sunday, August 28. 

Like many of you, my own house flooded and we evacuated just in time. The CHADD Lending Library, along with nearly all of the other materials I had on ADHD, LD, Asperger's. Executive Function Deficits, sensory issues, etc. are now gone. We will rebuild, and we will meet again, but I'm afraid it will not be this month. Our scheduled speaker, Dr. Bill Daigle, has offered to reschedule and we are working to finalize a date for that meeting. In the meantime, please use this Sunday afternoon to dry off your belongings and to be with your families. If you have an opportunity, please visit our website or our Facebook Page and let us know that you are safe.

Keeping you all in my prayers.

The local Chapter of CHADD is partnering with the Greater Baton Rouge Learning Disabilities Coalition, FHFGBR, IDA and others to host a monthly workshop and support group for families. Topics of interest to those concerned with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger’s Syndrome and related learning disabilities and challenges will be covered at meetings scheduled for the fourth Sunday of most months during the school year. 

Learn more about meetings and plan to attend. Educate yourself about the challenges faced by those with learning disabilities. Be a force for change in the lives of those with these challenges.

Meetings are open and free to the public. Children are welcome at the regular Chapter Meetings if closely supervised.
