As evidenced by many studies, there are brain differences in those affected by ADHD that persist with full or partial symptomatology throughout the lifespan and – if left undiagnosed and untreated – put a significant economic burden on the individuals affected, their families and society in general.
At the same time, these brain differences bring with them unique stengths and skills that can be of significant benefit in the workpace if recognized and utilized.
ADHD-Europe’s ADHD Awareness Month Declaration is about ”ADHD in Adulthood: Implications in the Workplace”.
To mark the ADHD Awareness month in October 2017 and beyond, ADHD-Europe has published a declaration to highlight the need for a better understanding of how ADHD presents in girls and women so that those who are still left undiagnosed across Europe – and indeed the World – receive the specialist care they need in future. This Declaration includes key recommendations that are designed to bring about the changes that are badly needed, thus rectifying the situation. Please show your support for this Declaration by adding your signature to it and sharing it as widely as possible. We in ADHD Europe are calling for greater attention to the situation faced by the countless women and girls with undiagnosed ADHD across Europe and indeed the world. This must be a priority across Europe so please sign and share the Declaration – CLICK HERE Available in the following languages English Français Español, Italiano Greco
•2016•H•E•L•P• my ADHD Teenager is becoming an ADHD Adult!
Recent Research studies find a shortage of Transitional Services for Young Adults (18+) who have ADHD: This Needs to Be Rectified. Our children for whom we advocated 10 years ago (Green Paper, 2006) are now young adults, and the services that we pleaded for throughout the intervening years have on the whole improved for this age group. However, ADHD-Europe members now find that there are a lot of difficulties for young adults (18+) when the services that were available for them as children and adolescents are no longer available to them once they reach 17- 18 years of age, a critical time in their further development when they are still in education and training.
