CHADD was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with AD/HD. At that time, one could turn to very few places for support or information and it was thought that AD/HD was a childhood condition. Many people seriously misunderstood AD/HD. Many clinicians and educators knew little about the disability, and individuals with AD/HD were often mistakenly labeled “behavior problems,” “unmotivated,” “not intelligent.”
Get the support and education needed in regards to AD/HD from CHADD! Today, individuals, families and professionals dealing with AD/HD can turn to CHADD for a support system. We hold FREE meetings in over 200 communities across the country. This is possible through those who become members of CHADD for just $53 a year. By becoming a member, you are supporting your local chapter hold FREE meetings, as well as CHADD on a national level to advocate in Washington for services and accommodations in the workplace and schools.
