Founded in 1993, ADHD Western Australia is a support, information, and advocacy agency for people with ADHD and associated conditions.

We work with children, teenagers, and adults living with learning differences, as well as their families and partners. We also support those who treat, teach, and work with people living with ADHD.

The ripple effects of ADHD can be seen in families, workplaces, schools, and communities. We exist to provide information and practical support, aid research initiatives, and spread awareness about ADHD through resources and events. If there’s something we can help you with, let us know.

What is ADHD?

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder — it’s a neurobiological condition that affects around 6% of the national population. The condition is characterised by developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. This commonly presents as difficulty sitting still, paying attention, or controlling impulsive behaviour.

For some, ADHD is pervasive and persistent to the point of interfering with everyday life in home, academic, social, and work environments.
