We're the ADHD Resource for San Fernando Valley's...
Teachers and Educators
CHADD of San Fernando Valley exists to improve the lives of people in our community who are impacted by Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
ADHD is a lifelong neurobiological disorder that impacts brain function, resulting in impaired executive function and delayed social-emotional development. Studies have shown ADHD-related challenges may decrease life expectancy, but that a combination of proper diagnosis, ADHD education, skills training, medical treatment, and peer support dramatically improve outcomes.
We provide support, education, and advocacy locally through our donation-based monthly education meetings, in-person support groups and workshops, online support groups, online education, and community resource sharing. As a non-profit, volunteer organization our members come from all walks of life – parents and caregivers of ADHD children, adults with ADHD, partners of ADHD adults, educators, medical and therapeutic professionals.
Together, we aim to build a strong ADHD-savvy community in the San Fernando Valley, improving the lives and outcomes of those around us living with the executive function challenges of ADHD.
