Mission Statement: CHADD’s mission is to improve the lives of people affected by ADHD.
Overview: CHADD is a national non-profit organization providing education, advocacy, and support for individuals with ADHD. CHADD has three current priority objectives: (1) to serve as a clearinghouse for evidence-based information on ADHD; (2) to serve as a local face-to-face family support group for families and individuals affected by ADHD; and (3) to serve as an advocate for appropriate public policies and public recognition in response to needs faced by families and individuals with ADHD.
CHADD facilitates the National Resource Center on ADHD (NRC), which was established in 2002 in partnership with the CDC. The NRC provides information, resources, and support including:
- NRC Website: Provides information on symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, educational issues, and living with ADHD for individuals and families affected by the disorder. All web content is available in English and Spanish.
- NRC Library: An online database with over 6,000 records of scientific journal articles, books, and other media on ADHD and related conditions.
- Health information specialists, including a bilingual specialist, who can respond to individual questions via a toll-free information line (800-233-4050). This service is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST.
CHADD also publishes a variety of printed materials containing information on research advances, medications, and treatments affecting individuals with ADHD. These materials include Attention magazine, News From CHADD, a free electronically mailed current events newsletter, and other publications of specific interest to educators, professionals, and parents.
