In 2015, a group of professionals from diverse backgrounds came together with the common goal to form an organisation that could provide a unified professional perspective on the causes, diagnosis, management and treatment of ADHD.
The Australian ADHD Professionals Association was formed in November 2016, as a Company Limited by Guarantee (ACN: 616 076 049). AADPA is an independent, not-for-profit company, registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
Australian ADHD Professionals Association Board of Directors consists of President, Vice-President and 4 committee members.
AADPA’s mission is to promote the evidence-based research, diagnosis, treatment and management of ADHD for the benefit of individuals with ADHD and their families across Australia. We aim:
Diversity is our strength. AADPA prides itself on the inter-disciplinary nature of our membership. AADPA members come from academia, clinical practice (psychiatry, paediatrics, psychology), coaching and education across Australia and including New Zealand. All members are committed to working towards enhanced lifetime outcomes for individuals with ADHD and their families.
