Born to be ADHD

Born to be ADHD is a report that highlights that there are fewer ADHD advocates in comparison to other mental health disorders, ADHD receives little representation at a policy level and in areas of jurisdiction or social governance, and its own symptoms repress the voices of those it affects.  It has since been consistently neglected and deprioritised across UK health and social care, which has damaged future life chances for people with ADHD. Although a UK study, this study is indicative of the effects of ADHD.  Without effective management, ADHD will often have a substantial impact on academic and work-related outcomes. Several published studies have found significant differences in academic performance, relationships with siblings and behavioural and conduct problems in children with ADHD compared to those without the condition. This link provides great insights into the issues that face many ADHD communities.
