In-Person Programs For Boys and Young Men With ADHD in Phoenix, Arizona

Guys Group: 5th - 7th and 8th-9th grades (separate programs)

Guy’s Group is a fun, active program for boys diagnosed with ADHD.

During Guy’s Group, we play games, watch educational videos, and learn strategies to address challenges common among boys with ADHD. A significant focus is decided to building and sustaining friendships.

Optional trips during school vacation days are also part of the Guy’s Group experience. Guy’s Group is not a “social skills group”; the research evidence shows that traditional social skills groups are ineffective for kids with ADHD. Guy’s Group has been presented at the International Conference on ADHD.

Program Tuition: TBA (Please note there are no discounts or pro-rated tuition for missed sessions.)
Program Time: Beginning fall 2024, please add yourself to the Phoenix mailing list for information.
Program Location: (To be announced upon opening of Phoenix office)

The Guy’s Group curriculum is informed by research data on ADHD, boys mental health and medically accurate information. Opinions, values or ideologies are not taught in Guy’s Group ( aside from treating all people with respect.) Families of all faiths and beliefs are welcome to participate in Guy's Group.

Our in-person school-year programs will start in Phoenix, Arizona in the fall. 

We do not offer virtual programs for kids and do not recommend them. 

Phoenix area families should join our Phoenix mailing list to be notified about upcoming programs.
