In today’s episode, we talk with Dani, Andria and Kat about their challenges with the job market while living with ADHD.
According to the Centre for ADHD Awareness Canada [CADDAC], adults with ADHD are less likely to obtain full-time employment; resulting in lower household income.
Reports show those with childhood ADHD to have reduced earnings in adult life by roughly 33 percent. The loss of workplace productivity is reason why Canada loses an estimated $6 billion to $11 billion annually.
CADDAC estimates that untreated ADHD costs the Canadian economy 12 million days of work and $600 million in accumulated taxes.
