Finding our events
Our Monthly Events tab is at the top of our Substack Home Page. You can easily learn about our various group activities there. Each group has its own section within that page, so look for the Parent’s Group, Adult’s Group, Women’s Group, Adolescent Group, or Special Events subpage per your interest. These are also listed below, so keep scrolling to find the group that interests you!
We’ll post new helpful articles and recordings of events on our Articles and Event Recordings page. Note: not all of our events are recorded, but if they are, they will be posted here.

Space is limited for our in-person gatherings. We will save a seat for you when you sign up for the event. Please let us know if your plans change so we can open your seat to someone else!
Here’s what you can look forward to in upcoming months:

The ADHD 365 podcast provides expert advice, tips, and strategies for families, adults, educators, and professionals.
The All Things ADHD podcast is a learning resource program of CHADD’s National Resource Center, funded by the CDC, to disseminate expert information to improve the lives of those affected by ADHD.
