About CHADD of Greater Sacramento

 

CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) of Greater Sacramento offers support group meetings and other services to people impacted by ADHD and ADD.

CHADD of Greater Sacramento support group meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month, from 7-9 PM, at the UC Davis Medical Center MIND Institute, 2825 50th Street, Sacramento, CA 95817. Get directions.

Our meetings are FREE & OPEN to the public. Meetings are free if you are a CHADD member; if you are not a member, we do ask for a $5 donation, but no one will ever be turned away for inability to donate.

ALL CHADD support group meeting coordinators and facilitators are parent and/or professional VOLUNTEERS.

We are a local affiliate of the national CHADD organization. Making a difference for more than 25 years, CHADD is the nation’s leading organization serving people affected by ADHD and related conditions.

CHADD was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD.

CHADD has thousands of members in 200 local chapters throughout the United States. Chapters offer support for individuals, parents, teachers, professionals, and others. Contact information for all local chapters is available online through the Chapter Locator.

In addition to publishing the bi-monthly ATTENTION magazine for members, CHADD offers training about ADHD to parents through its Parent to Parent program and to educators through its Teacher to Teacher program. CHADD sponsors an annual international conference on ADHD and actively advocates for people affected by ADHD. The National Resource Center on ADHD: A Program of CHADD (NRC) is the CDC-funded national clearinghouse for evidence-based information about ADHD.

CHADD does not endorse products, services, publications, medications, or treatments.

  1. My 15 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with ADD & ADHD. I noticed that you had a meeting in March with college representatives and information for teens that are struggling. Do you know if this information will be repeated, or how I can get some resources? I am feeling a bit lost trying to navigate through the school system to get my daughter the assistance she needs. Any information you may have would be GREATLY appreciated.

  2. Hi, Tammi, sorry for the delayed response. We hope you can make it to our June 3 meeting, which will focus on educational rights of students with ADHD, particularly 504 Plans and IEPs, which can help struggling students. See our latest blog post for more information!

  3. Do you offer the parent to parent classes. I have a five year old girl with ADHd, this is all finally making sense, but I am looking for better parenting skills for dealing with ADHD.

  4. Hi, I am 36 yrs old and just got diagnosed with ADD. Will you be having a meeting in June? Also would it be good for my wife to come to a meeting with me?
    Thank you
