Parents of Children with ADHD Group Meeting

Online event

TR CHADD NJ is here to help!

We have convenient Parent Support and Adults with ADHD meetings currently ONLINE ONLY. Space is limited so please register early for meetings.

ADHD is a complex condition that isn't straightforward in its, presentation, its impairments, or in its symptom cluster, therefore its treatments will need to be multifactorial. No two cases "look" the same and therefor there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to treatment.
However, there is consensus, that what is foundational to treatment for both kids and adults, is information, education and training.

CHADD volunteer coordinators facilitate peer to peer meetings and can help you understand what is needed to have a good outcome. TRI CHADD NJ provides judgment free and confidential meetings. Our members gain knowledge and support through networking with other parents, current information from CHADD, and the extensive resources TRI CHADD NJ we can put you in touch with.
