ADHD in Adulthood: Implications in the Workplace
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”.
