The local Chapter of CHADD is partnering with FHFGBR, GBRLDC, and LaBIDA to host our monthly workshops and support group meetings 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. However, this particular meeting might be difficult for small children

If you have an opportunity, please visit our Facebook Page and let us know that you will be there.

Women With ADHD Support

We are very happy to announce that a volunteer has stepped up to organize meetings for women dealing with their own ADHD challenges. The next meeting will be Saturday, March 4 at 2:00. Meetings are held in Room B on the 2nd Floor of the main library on Goodwood. Click here to see the flyer about the meeting, and please share this information with anyone who might be interested.

Research on the ways that ADHD affects women and girls is a growing field, and for good reason. Symptoms are often different for women than for men, and the impact can be different, as well. To learn more about ADHD in women and girls, read this CHADD article, and join Gail Scott and others at the meeting on Saturday!
