For Our Annual

Back to School Meeting

We hope to announce a speaker and topic for this meeting soon. Please follow us on Facebook for more details.

Remember, as a parent, a grandparent, a caregiver, a spouse, a teacher, or an individual with ADHD/LD, you CAN deal with the struggles and find solutions that work! 

Join us to learn more about helping children and adults who struggle with impulse and emotional control, sensory issues, learning disabilities, and other challenges. Learn more about working with schools and others to see that your child with ADHD and/or LD receives the supports he or she needs to succeed.

We would really like to have a head count of those planning to attend this meeting. Please take a minute to check your schedule and let me know if you plan to attend. Come to the ADHD side - We will have COOKIES!


Volunteers Needed! 

We are looking for individuals interested in learning more about ADHD and how to manage the symptoms, while helping others in the community do the same.  Benefits include the opportunity to network with others who are going through the same things you are.  Please take a few minutes to consider whether you can do anything to help keep our meetings active. 

Do you have an interest in developing/improving our website? 
Can you help in scheduling speakers? 
Are you able to help promote meetings and activities? 
Do you have a secret (or not so secret) skill or talent that can help?

There are so many benefits to attending local meetings, whether there is a featured speaker, or whether we are sharing information and helping each other in as a support group. And there are even more benefits to volunteering, particularly that feeling you get when you know that you've made at least a small positive difference in someone's life. Please look inside and find a bit of time and energy you would be willing to share to help rebuild our Chapter. 

Learn about resources and short cuts to help with the challenges AD/HD brings to your life.  

Experience being part of a team that is sincere, humorous, and can't stand long, drawn out meetings. 

People like you!

Ideal candidates will have the ability to pitch in where interested and use talents they already possess.  No experience necessary.  No reasonable offers refused.  We can modify current openings to match your interest areas and talents.  A list of specific tasks where your help is needed can be found on the How You Can Help page. 

We seriously need your help.

Come early this Sunday to learn more. 

We hope to see you at 2:00!

The local Chapter of CHADD partners 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!

Our ADDult Support Group Meetings are going strong. Meetings start at 6:30 PM and are held the first Tuesday of each month at Jason's Deli, 2531 CitiPlace Court, off of Corporate Blvd.
