Introduction to the ADHD Pages.

This site isn't just about AD/HD! ADHD is a medical label given to a person displaying a batch of symptoms that may well overlap with other medical conditions like; Aspergers Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, OCD and similar neurological differences. You may well get diagnosed with one of these conditions with one consultant only to find you get diagnosed with a different label by different consultant. While we are left wondering which condition we really have or do we have more than one?

This site has used the term "hidden impairments" to look at issues regardless to whether your diagnosed with AD/HD or something else. This site is not just looking at all the difficulties caused by having a medical condition! It's also trying to promote skills and talents we have too! Chris has ADHD and AS and from very early childhood he established brilliant drawing skills. Throughout this site you will see many drawings by Chris, you can also go direct to his "Cartoon Page" on this site. Hopefully this site will be highlighting more and more great skills people have with hidden impairments.

With ADHD there is much debate going on around access to medical support and whether drugs are right or not to use! However not so much attention is given to weather people with AD/HD are able to experience participating with society on equal terms. So this site is keen to look at equal opportunities (discrimination) issues that people with ADHD and similar neurological conditions may experience.

This site is; Attempting to open doors for people with hidden voices.
