Adults

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 at large. At the same time, these brain differences bring with them unique strengths and skills that can be of significant benefit in the workplace if recognized and utilized.

Liberal Democrats have called on the Scottish Government to develop a new strategy to help adults suffering from ADHD.

Members at the party's Scottish conference in Dunfermline, Fife, passed a motion which also demanded "urgent" action from health services to make it easier for adults to be diagnosed with the condition.

AS THE mother of 13-year-old twins with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), assistant head teacher Carolyn Lawler is uniquely qualified to support families when a child at her school is diagnosed with the condition

First-hand experience with her daughters has also helped her spot girls with ADHD symptoms and steer families towards a diagnosis. It's estimated that one in 20 children has ADHD and boys are three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed but Carolyn believes this is because it is often not picked up in childhood.

Lack of awareness of the behavioural disorder has meant many people found it difficult to hold down jobs. But proper diagnosis and support are allowing more employees to make the most of their talents

As an employee, I wasn’t very good because I was inconsistent,” says Jannine Harris, 44, from Northampton. “I’m brilliant, and then I’m rubbish. And that’s obviously frustrating for an employer to contend with because they don’t know which Jannine they are going to get.”
