For parents: topic is Understanding the Evaluation Process Under IDEA 2004, presented by Colleen Miller, O.C.E.C.D.

For ADD adults: topic is ADD From the Inside Out, presented by Nancy Schleich, LISW-S.  High school or college age teens may also benefit from this discussion of attention awareness and exercises and are invited to this session.

CHADD meetings are open to the public and are free to CHADD members.  They ask for a $5 donation from non-members who attend (to offset the cost of photocopying and refreshments.)  They say pre-registration helps plan seating, amount of materials and refreshments.
