Formerly known as LADS (Learning and Attentional Disorders Society of WA), ADHD WA was officially opened in September 1993 following a year-long, government-sponsored research program. This program demonstrated that services for those diagnosed with ADHD were inadequate, poorly coordinated, and unable to cope with public demands. It also highlighted the insufficient levels of support and information available for people with ADHD.
ADHD WA was founded to change this and start providing highly-professional resources, programs, counselling, events, and more, to effectively support people affected by ADHD. We place an emphasis on promoting research-based materials to provide the most informed support available.
