Learning and Attentional Disorders Society (LADS) is an ADHD advocacy group.

Channel Nine's Sunday program reported that LADS is a strong supporter of drug solutions for ADHD despite controversy over the condition. [1] The program also revealed a statement from LADS confirming that it has received funding from a pharmaceutical company that markets ADHD drugs (supposedly with "no strings attached"). (Transcript of Part 2 of the program not available online).

LADS deals with both childhood, and increasingly, adult ADHD: "The symptoms used to diagnose adults with ADHD are identical to those used in the diagnosis of children." [2]
