About Your Instructor
-Tammy O'Neil-

As a mother of an adult son with ADHD, grandchildren, and former foster parent of two children with ADHD, I wanted and needed support, educational resources and continuing education about this complex brain-based learning challenge.  Thus, began my journey for knowledge and I discovered CHADD!  CHADD offers a continuous learning path of education, advocacy and support for individuals and families living with ADHD.

I am an associate certified coach, certified Parent to Parent: Family Training on ADHD instructor and certified student success coach that specializes in ADHD coaching and professional organizing.  I recommend CHADD to all of my clients so they can have access to continuing education and support.  As co-coordinator of North Tarrant County CHADD Support Group, I help facilitate our monthly support group and organize our speaker program and special events.
