We're the ADHD Resource for San Fernando Valley's...
Teachers and Educators
Children & Adults with ADHD (CHADD) of San Fernando Valley - Los Angeles 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 peer support, education, and advocacy through our donation-based peer support groups, education meetings, workshops, 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.
