About BuxMont CHADD

Based in Bucks and Montgomery counties of PA, BuxMont CHADD serves:

  • parents of children with ADHD,
  • adults with ADHD and
  • those who love them.

History

In 2009, 3 moms of kids with ADHD received news that the founder of their new ADHD support group had to step down and the group would close. The moms wanted to continue to meet and learn about ADHD, so they became the founding members of a new CHADD group, Elkins Park CHADD.

A short time later, Larry Maltin joined the group to better support his granddaughter who had recently been diagnosed with ADHD. His involvement evolved to create a strong program of monthly speakers for parents of kids with ADHD.

Elkins Park CHADD continued to expand to provide monthly programming for adults with ADHD, as well as creating a social group for adults with ADHD to meet informally on a regular basis.

In 2016, Elkins Park expanded support to Bucks County and changed its name to BuxMont CHADD.

Since then, BuxMont CHADD expanded by creating an ADHD social group which meets monthly in Bucks County.

Our Services

BuxMont CHADD offers monthly informative sessions for parents with presentations by expert speakers. The group also adds supportive conversations between parents of children with ADHD. Parents speaking with other parents is a valued asset to helping parents curb the loneliness and helplessness of the ADHD journey.

A separate adult’s group features speakers or round table discussions to share and discuss concerns and strategies for living and thriving as an adult with ADHD.

Topics at our meetings cut across the most critical domains of development for persons with ADHD. Professional treatment, including medications, school and available support, home environment, social relationships and the workplace. In addition to providing speakers who have the latest information in each of these areas for parents and adults, we also hold monthly social and support group meetings that allow conversations between parents and adults with ADHD in a safe and supportive environment. See our Calendar of Events for upcoming speaker meetings and support/social groups for ADHD in Bucks and Montgomery County PA.

As part of its Information, Education and Support Services to the ADHD community in Bucks and Montgomery Counties, BuxMont CHADD maintains an online Professional Resource Directory (PRD) of area professionals who have indicated they provide services for families and individuals living with ADHD. 

Benefits of Attending a CHADD Meeting

Our meetings give people with ADHD the opportunity to be with other people who understand the impact of ADHD on your life. Sometimes we just need to be heard, or to relay our frustration without being judged.

The atmosphere of honesty at our meetings is very refreshing. Some aspects of the ADHD journey are predictable, and we can help prepare you for the next stage.

Members share their experiences with local professionals and can make recommendations. CHADD does not endorse any specific professional or service.
