AADPA’s mission is focused on providing
evidence-based research, diagnosis, treatment
and advocacy in the field of ADHD.
AADPA was founded in 2016 to fill a void at the national level for an organization that could develop Australian ADHD practice guidelines, facilitate the development and implementation of training standards and guidelines, share information among stakeholder groups, advocate to governments, teaching environments and employment organizations on ADHD and take a leadership role in ADHD research in Australia.
AADPA remains committed to ensuring evidence-based research, diagnosis, treatment and advocacy of ADHD for the benefit of individuals with ADHD and their families across Australia. We will continue to do this work in a variety of ways as long as unconditional funding sources remain available.
AADPA relies heavily on the contribution of its many volunteers including our Board, committee and organisation members, who donate considerable time and expertise to the organisation.
AADPA’s activities, which include an annual professional conference, professional training programs, webinars and advocacy, are funded in a variety of ways including membership fees, conference revenue, government funding and other resource fees.
As many medical organisations do, we also receive some funding from a range of companies through sponsorship of our annual conference. Pharmaceutical companies are permitted sponsorship of our conference, as are other companies providing services to the ADHD field.
Conference sponsors have no input into the accredited conference program or schedule. AADPA stipulates in all agreements with corporate, or any other type of funders, that the organisation has full control of content and messaging in proposed projects.
AADPA continues to work towards diversification of its funding base to obtain financial support for education, training and advocacy projects from a variety of private and public funded sources.
