Let's Change the World!
ADDA’s Workplace Issues Committee is conducting a survey to determine:
- How many ADHDers choose to disclose their ADHD at work?
- What factors contribute to the decision to disclose (or not)?
- For those who do disclose, what are the results?
If you are or were an employee with ADHD, whether or not you ever disclosed your ADHD at work, please help shed some light on the decision to disclose. Our survey can be completed quickly and easily. The results will be published here on the ADDA Web site. Participate now.
Can we count on you?
Please spread the word and encourage other adults with ADHD to take the survey. Knowing helps all of us! Thank you!
