Parents of Kids with ADHD (and other adults who support ADHD)

Our parents group has speakers about once a month but the dates and times vary based on speaker availability.

 

Sign ups will be posted as they are available. If you sign up, please try to show up. We've had a small percentage of people who sign up actually log in. While we know that things happen, it is disappointing for our speakers who volunteer their time to plan and present their topic only have few people show up. Please respect these fabulous volunteers and let us know if you won't be able to attend so they can plan accordingly.

sect 504.png
Section 504 and Students with Disabilities

The term “Section 504” refers to a specific part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities by any program or activity that receives federal funding. ADHD can be a qualifying diagnosis for a 504Plan in public and private schools that receive federal funding. 

Alisha Ogden, the Multicultural Coordinator at MPACT, will discuss the legal background of Section 504, the evaluation process, 504 plans and services and the procedural safeguards in place to protect individuals with disabilities at our next Parent Meeting.

A certificate of completion will be made available at your request.

When: February 15th at 7 PM

Upcoming 2021 Adults with ADHD and their Partners Meeting Dates:

This group is for adults with ADHD, and those that are interested in learning more about thriving as an adult with ADHD. Friends and family are welcome, and you do not need to have an "official" diagnosis to attend. 

We are taking a break and hope to resume in person meetings when it is safe to do so. Wear your mask and get vaccinated so this is possible! Stay tuned for more details!

If you are looking for an online support group and will not be able to continue once we transition to in person meetings, there are many online options through CHADD and ADDA.
