We're the ADHD Resource for the Los Angeles area's...
Children & Adults with ADHD (CHADD) of Greater Los Angeles exists to improve the lives of people in our community who are impacted by Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We serve the greater Los Angeles area, including the San Fernando and Conejo Valleys.
ADHD is a lifelong neurobiological condition that impacts brain function, resulting in impaired executive function and delayed social-emotional development. Studies have shown ADHD-related challenges can decrease life expectancy by up to 13 years*, but that a combination of proper diagnosis, ADHD education, skills training, medical treatment, and peer support dramatically improve outcomes.
We provide peer support, education, and advocacy through our donation-based support group, education, and skills training meetups. We also provide one-on-one support, an online support community, online resources, and community resource sharing.
We serve all communities impacted by ADHD including parents and caregivers of children with ADHD, adults and teens with ADHD, partners of ADHD adults, medical and therapeutic professionals who treat ADHD individuals, and educators working with ADHD students.
Our hope is that together, with the communities we serve, we can improve the lives and outcomes of those who struggle with the self-regulation and executive function challenges of ADHD.
