    WebMD’s ADHD Guide gives you the latest findings on how to self-manage ADHD symptoms. But if you want even more information, here are resources that can help you find it. There are a number of ADHD organizations on the Internet that can help you find out about topics such as learning disabilities, adult and adolescent ADHD, the latest clinical trials, and advocacy groups for people with ADHD.

    One of these is CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). CHADD is a leading nonprofit organization with local chapters throughout the U.S. At CHADD’s website, you can find strong social support by connecting with others affected by ADHD. Plus, you can search for a local chapter of CHADD that may be near you. This is one way to get involved with others who live with ADHD in the family.
