The complex language and technical nature of the Australian Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline for ADHD may present challenges for those without a clinical background to understand fully.

To address this, a Consumer Companion was developed to make the information in the Guideline more accessible for individuals with ADHD, their families, and other stakeholders.
