CHADD is a national non-profit organization committed to providing education, advocacy and support for individuals who have ADHD, as well as, support and education for parents/educators/caregivers of children with ADHD. As the Denver-Metro Satellite chapter of CHADD, our goal is to create a community that provides not only educational, how-to strategies, but a also a place to feel safe and comfortable in sharing frustrations and experiences in the hopes that a nugget can be found at each meeting that will provide the refresh and reboot so many of us need.
Denver-Metro CHADD was awarded CHADD Affiliate of the Year at the annual CHADD conference in Orlando, FL, Nov 10, 2011!
The mission of Denver-Metro CHADDis to bring together a collaborative community through support, awareness, resources and education to help shape the future of our society by supporting those impacted by ADHD so they may build on their strengths, realize their full potential and foster the contribution of their talents back to their communities.
When: We meet monthly on the third Monday. Please Check the dates carefully. You will find meetings scheduled on this site as well as our CHADD website at chadd.net/334.
Where: Denver Academy-Richardson Hall-4400 E. Iliff Ave, Denver, CO 80222
Come at 6PM if you'd like to do some social networking and connect with others.
The first portion of the meeting is an educational presentation presented by a professional on an appropriate topic. Then we break out into small informal groups (parent/caregiver group, adult group and partnership/marriage group) for open discussion and support.
Our primary program focus has been on topics for Parents/Educators and Caregivers of children with ADHD, though we are branching out into support for Adults and Marriage/Partnership with ADHD. Also, check our sites for programs pertaining to adults.
You will see that we are sponsored by many wonderful services from those who focus on or care about those impacted by AD/HD and other disorders. We appreciate their support and care for our group, but please note that CHADD does not endorse any product, service, publication, medication or treatment. Also note that any and all activities conducted by Denver-Metro CHADD do not comprise therapy or treatment in any way.
