The Centre for Effective ADHD Action

The Centre for Effective ADHD Action (CEADA) is an organisation operating within the HART Network. Decades of evidence have shown ADHD to be a serious congenital neurological condition that for many individuals, causes life-long suffering that may have been prevented had appropriate interventions been available. Persistent failure to recognise ADHD as a cause for serious concern has resulted in an insidious public health crisis that causes extreme damage to individuals, communities, and economies world-wide.

The first aim of CEADA is to proliferate factual information on the urgency required for effective ADHD action. The second aim is to promote the success of high-efficiency policy and commercial interventions that target key problem areas in ADHD management. These key areas include:

  • Poor efficacy of traditional learning design for ADHD students (both adults and children).
  • Out-dated diagnostic protocols and lack of evidence based classification system.
  • Misconceptions and trivialisation among healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators and policymakers.
  • Lack of supportive policy strategies in both community and healthcare settings.
  • Current projects for each problem area

    1. Poor efficacy of traditional learning design for ADHD students (both adults and children).

    Current Projects:
