COVID19 Update: Since the start of the pandemic, most of our meetings have been held online. The Women's Small Group is meeting in person. 

 

All meetings require signing up prior to the event. To get your sign in information, sign up for the events you're interested in attending.

 

If you do not get information about how to join online within a week of the meeting, check your SPAM folder by searching for a word in the title or the speaker's name. Recordings will be posted to our Past Events page if available.

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.

Middle and High School Students are welcome to join our online group!

 

Each month the moderator will introduce a topic (chosen at the previous meeting by participants) with a short presentation, followed by a game of Kahoot. Kahoot allows everyone to test their knowledge in a fun format and typically initiates discussion. When you sign up you'll learn more about how to play - but many students have played at school and are familiar with the app.

We'll meet at 7:30 pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month unless otherwise noted. Sign up to get an invitation to join us on Zoom.

 

In September we'll talk about overcoming social anxiety. We hope you can join us!

Upcoming 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.

Explaining ADHD to your child

Another CHADD chapter is inviting others to their upcoming webinar (note: Pacific time zone):

 

Explaining an ADHD diagnosis to your child in a way that educates them, empowers them, and doesn't confuse or shame them is something professionals don't often discuss. That's why, I'm so excited to welcome Dr. Liz to speak to our community next month. She's a fantastic psychologist who specializes in helping parents explain the diagnosis to their kids and helping kids find the words to explain their diagnosis to others. RSVP at the link below and mark your calendar to join us, August 24th at 7:00 pm Pacific.

Don't worry if you get a "content is not available" notice - scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Join" then follow instructions.
