LADS was there for me when my 1st child was diagnosed. I wanted to be a volunteer for an organization that had integrity. The support line seemed to be a way of giving out information to help others, navigate their way through the difficulties of living with ADHD, whether they be children or adults. (Robyn)
Helping the hard working people who helped me when I needed it. (Susan)
Living with ADHD myself and parenting my ADHD son has shown me the challenges and the special gifts of ADHD, that are lifelong. I want society at large to understand ADHD better, to not dismiss it as a childhood problem or an overblown one. LADS has helped us, I want to be a part of helping others through LADS. (Josephine)
