AD/HD Education, Advocacy, Support

Welcome to Greater Orange County CHADD Chapter #455. We are parents, adults, teens, kids, professionals, and educators who have or deal with someone with AD/HD. We are volunteers who serve people throughout Orange County, California on behalf of our national organization Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). 

Founded in 1987, CHADD has local support group meetings, moderated meetings and EXPERT EDUCATIONAL MEETINGS throughout the U.S. Each group offers programming or information specific to their geographic area.

Greater OC CHADD Chapter #455 offers three different monthly meetings for anyone wanting to learn more about AD/HD and network with others for support. Best of all, the meetings are NO COST. You do not have to be a member of CHADD to attend. Click on a meeting button below to learn more!
