CHADD of RI is the local chapter of CHADD, a national non-profit organization that seeks to promote and provide education and support regarding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in adults and children. The RI chapter is run by parent volunteers. We are also aided by a Professional Advisory Board (PAB). The PAB is chaired by Mark Dumas, Ph.D., and comprised of professionals who are experts in the field of mental health and/or education. The chapter meetings provide a forum where information regarding ADHD and related topics can be obtained in an informal atmosphere. Please note that CHADD of RI does not provide mental health services, counseling, or diagnostic evaluations.We meet in the East Providence, Rhode Island area, covering both Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
CHADD works to improve the lives of individuals with attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder through education, advocacy, and support.
