How Your Donation Helps
CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is the nation’s leading non-profit organization serving individuals with ADHD and their families. CHADD has over 16,000 members in 200 local chapters throughout the U.S. Chapters offer support for individuals, parents, teachers, professionals, and others.
CHADD is a membership organization, produces the bi-monthly Attention magazine (for members), and sponsors an annual conference. The National Resource Center on ADHD (NRC) is the CDC-funded national clearinghouse for evidence-based information about ADHD.
CHADD was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD.
Your donations to CHADD support the programs and services of the nation’s leading nonprofit organization and its local community affiliates that together work to improve the lives of people affected by AD/HD.
There are some 4.4 million children in the United States with AD/HD, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and CHADD provides a wide variety of programs and services to assist them. In recent years, CHADD’s programs and services for children and adolescents with AD/HD have expanded to meet the needs of the millions of adults also being diagnosed and treated for the disorder in rapidly growing numbers.
