Maddi regularly contributes to media around ADHD, and welcomes requests for input on ADHD-related topics. 


Professional development options

Training on ADHD-informed practice is available for government, non-government and private sector organisations. The content is tailored to the roles of the intended participants and any other needs specified by the organisation.  This training is best delivered via a full or half day workshop, but can be streamlined into a shorter seminar presentation.  


For appropriately qualified health and allied health professionals the following full day workshops are available:

  • Diagnostic assessment of ADHD: a practical and structured approach 
  • Psychological intervention for adults with ADHD: practical approaches to implementing the evidence-base
  • Psychological intervention for parents of children and adolescents with ADHD: practical approaches to implementing the evidence-base

Workshops with alternative content can be designed to meet specific needs upon request.


Follow-up consultation for small groups or managers may be available to assist with implementation following participation in any of the workshop-length training sessions. 


Therapeutic programs and products

Development and piloting is underway for a range of resources that will assist professionals to provide education or work therapeutically with individuals and families impacted by ADHD.

The development process has been guided by current evidence-based approaches for non-pharmacological intervention for ADHD, along with broader evidence-based psychological intervention principles.  Importantly, the development process has been continuously informed by the lived experience of those with ADHD.

Researchers and providers of health services are welcome to submit an expression of interest for research collaboration or for pilot-stage participation, or to simply receive updates as resources become available for licensing or purchase.
