What we're about

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 CHADD is 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.

We are delighted that we can reschedule this event with Dr. Devore since we had to cancel it in January due to the weather. Dr. Devore, Clinical Psychologist and a founding member of Birch Psychology Group in Denver, also serves as an Adjunct Professor at DU . She is personally familiar with the challenges of ADHD in marriage and has made treating ADHD a focus in her practice for over 10 years. It brings her great satisfaction to support couples to recover their love and affection amidst the challenges of ADHD in their relationships. Christine seeks to make this an engaging discussion wherein she will provide strategies to help communicate and manage the conflicts we ADDers suffer in our relationships. This will be our chance to hear how we are not alone, not at fault and can address any specific questions we would like to ask from our personal experiences with the ADHD effects on our relationships.
