Starting an ADHD Support Group

If you can’t find a group that meets your needs, start your own. Recruit members by putting up posters or flyers in schools, the library or church, and at local stores. Talk with ADHD organizations and pediatricians. Be specific about the group’s purpose -- a support group for parents of ADHD children will attract a different membership than one for ADD spouses.

Although you don’t need a professional to run a group, you will need a committed person (or persons) to organize it. They will have to schedule meetings and speakers and, perhaps, moderate.
