Louisiana Capital Area CHADD
About Louisiana Capital Area CHADD
The Louisiana Capital Area Chapter of Children and Adults with Attention- Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder is a volunteer support and advocacy group. The organization hosts monthly workshops, boasts a large Lending Library, and has published a Parent/Teacher Handbook on ADD and Related Disorders which addresses concerns surrounding communication between home and school.
Our Chapter Objectives are as follows:
- to maintain a support network for parents who have children with AD/HD and adults with AD/HD
- to provide a forum for continuing education of parents, professionals, and adults with AD/HD about the disability
- to be a community resource for information about AD/HD
- to make the best educational experiences available to children with attention disorders so that their specific difficulties will be recognized and appropriately managed within educational settings
CHADD follows the recommendations of National Institutes of Mental Health and the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General, both of whom recommend a multimodal approach to treatment -- educational accommodations, parent and teacher training, and medication when necessary.
NOTE: CHADD does not endorse products, services, publications, medications or treatments. Individuals at a CHADD-sponsored event do not represent an endorsement by CHADD, nor is it testimony by CHADD as to the quality of the products, services, publications, medications or treatments or the validity of the individual’s claims.

About this site
Thank you for visiting our site. We are here to support families and others dealing with ADHD in Louisiana. Please post a note and plan to join us at an upcoming meeting.
For anyone who might have left a telephone message on our InfoLine in the last few months, please note that technical difficulties have resulted in the loss of a number of the messages. At this time we do not have sufficient volunteers to return individual telephone calls, so we hope that you will bring any questions to our meetings personally.
If you need to speak with a health information specialist about AD/HD and cannot wait until our next meeting, please call the National Resource Center on AD/HD at 1-800-233-4050.
