Mission: CHADD works to improve the lives of people affected by ADHD through: Collaborative Leadership; Advocacy; Research; Education and Support.
Programs: Public education and outreach - chadd provides a broad range of information on the diagnosis, treatment and management of adhd in both adults and children. Our goal is to provide usable information for the general public which is based on the latest scientific research and state of the art treatment guidelines. We provide this information through many mediums including print media, local presentations, chadd's website, trainings, conferences and press media.
membership and chapter services - in addition to good information, anyone dealing with a diagnosis of adhd in the community needs support from others who share the same concerns. Chadd's membership and chapters provide a community of people who share these concerns and are available to support one another.
public advocacy - chadd's public advocacy efforts ensures that the voice of those affected by adhd are heard by policy makers in health care and education. We provide information on the disorder and information on the ways policy affects access to treatment and support for adhd.
