Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD. At that time, one could turn very few places for support or information. Many people seriously misunderstood ADHD. Many clinicians and educators knew little about the disability, and individuals with ADHD were often mistakenly mislabeled.
Individuals and families dealing with ADHD turn to CHADD, the national organization representing individuals with ADHD, for education, advocacy and support. CHADD provides a treasure trove of information and guidance for parents and students to help meet many potential challenges and pave the way for success.
The CHADD website has extensive information on ADHD. In addition, CHADD’s National Resource Center on ADHD has information
specialists, definitive fact sheets and archival materials to assist parents and educators. The NRC website allows people affected by ADHD to submit questions and the toll-free phone number to speak with a live information specialist is 1.800.233.4050.
