MAPPING ADHD across Europe (EN) Print

This is the first report published by the project “Knowing Me, Knowing You”. The project started December 1st, 2000 and ended March 2002 and is a collaboration between national associations in Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden and United Kingdom. Norway is associated to the project on its own expense.

The European Commission, Employment and Social Affairs DG, has funded the “Knowing Me, Knowing You” project to identify the level and types of social exclusion associated with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) across Europe. The project will identify 1) key national ADHD groups and organisations 2) the extent and types of social exclusion across Europe and 3) key resource needs of organisations to combat social exclusion at local, regional and national level.

The project will deliver three reports.”Mapping ADHD across Europe” is the first and it is based on a mapping exercise - via questionnaire - of the situation across EU regarding people with ADHD. Parents views on the ideal way to diagnosis and early intervention is published in the second report. The third report is about adults with ADHD: How to unlock society’s knowledge for
people with ADHD who are intelligent but often are excluded from employment opportunities and from taking part in activities which enable them to reach their potential for themselves and for the community’s in which they live.

The three reports are meant to be read independently of each other. Therefore the reader will find that the introduction to ADHD and the
description of ADHD as a diverse and complex condition are repeated in each report.
