Parenting young children, especially those with ADHD or suspected ADHD, comes with its unique set of hurdles. From schoolwork struggles to emotional outbursts, it’s no walk in the park. But seeking professional help? That’s a whole other saga.

Enter Clarity Pediatrics, a new and innovative chronic care startup founded in 2021, swooping in to slash wait times for diagnosis and kickstart ADHD therapy from months to mere days. And get this—the average co-pay per session? Just a cool $15.

So, what’s their secret sauce? Instead of dishing out individual therapy sessions to the kiddos, Clarity hosts eight-week group therapy sessions for parents. Yep, you read that right. Because, let’s face it, when it comes to managing ADHD, arming parents with strategies and skills can work wonders.

They’re company is all about behavioral parent training (BPT), endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics for families grappling with mild-to-moderate ADHD in kids aged five to 12. At then of the day, young kids need a little parental guidance to better navigate school focus and emotional rollercoasters.

Over the past 18 months, Clarity has been weaving its magic online, catering to thousands of families across California. Now armed with a hefty $10 million in seed funds from heavy hitters like Rethink Impact, Homebrew, and Maverick Ventures, they’re gearing up to expand their reach beyond state lines in 2024.

But wait, there’s more on Clarity’s roadmap. While currently fixated on ADHD treatment for the little ones, they’ve got their sights set on broader horizons—think pediatric chronic conditions like asthma, allergies, and obesity.

And who’s steering this ship? LaMontagne, former COO at Pill Club, teams up with Dr. Alesandro Larrazabal, a pediatrician with stints at UCSF, Stanford, and Kaiser Permanente’s specialty services. Clarity’s recent funding frenzy also saw January Ventures, Vamos Ventures, Alumni Ventures, and City Light VC hopping on board.

Today, Clarity plays a crucial role in a space where childhood chronic diseases are on the rise. For quite some time now, there’s been a barrier to more specialized care for these kids, and Clarity is working hard to bridge the gap, and offer a comprehensive care package for those in need.
