CHADD of North Texas serves the North Texas area. We are your resource for helping you and your child learn what attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) is and what it isn’t. We will provide you with the tools and information that your child needs to fully develop his/her potential. It starts with getting the right diagnosis, finding the right treatment, getting help at school, and learning from others who have walked in your shoes.
If you are an adult with AD/HD, we also have resources for you (did you know that many parents of children with AD/HD realize that they, too, have AD/HD?). It’s never too late to start finding out how you can put your best self forward as you balance the challenges and rewards associated with AD/HD.
Let us help connect you with AD/HD professionals and resources and, together, we can chart a path for the healthy growth of your loved one and, in the process, make life a little easier.
