Children and Addults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) is an organization that supports ongoing research and education of ADHD. Their website, CHADD.org, offers a ton of resources to learn more about it and to learn how to manage it in children, teens and adults.

CHADD is part education, part advocacy, and part resource directory. Some of the things you can find on their website include:

From their About page:

“Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD. At that time, one could turn to very few places for support or information. Many people seriously misunderstood ADHD. Many clinicians and educators knew little about the disability, and individuals with ADHD were often mistakenly labeled ‘a behavior problem,’ ‘unmotivated,’ or ‘not intelligent enough.’

The organization has a small national staff, which manages the day-to-day responsibilities, while its Board of Directors sets policy and oversees the organization’s well being. The organization is composed of dedicated volunteers from around the country who play an integral part in the association’s success by providing support, education and encouragement to parents, educators and professionals on a grassroots level through CHADD chapters. Along with its growth in membership and reputation, CHADD has retained the passion and commitment of its founders.”
