Did you know that CHADD of Utah is run by volunteers?

 We are parents, grandparents, and adults who know what it is like to live AD/HD. We desire to share reliable information on AD/HD to help the parents, children, family, friends and educators understand AD/HD.

But, there is too much to do.  We cannot do it alone.

Have you benefited from previous contact with CHADD?

Do you have a couple hours or more a month to help?

Then Teacher to Teacher is for you.
