ADHD and London's Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities
This quick TWO PAGE survey accompanies the discussion paper – ADHD and London’s BAME communities, which is available from the publications pages at www.rota.org.uk.
Between November 2011 and February 2013, ROTA delivered the Shaping the Future seminar series, which considered educational reforms and the current state of play in terms of educational inequality in the capital. A concerning discussion point that came up at many of the seminars was that growing numbers of BAME children and young people are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and pressurised to take medication by healthcare practitioners and schools.
ROTA launched this survey in an effort to address the dearth of data and information about ADHD and BAME communities in the UK. Through completing this survey you will be contributing to the initial evidence base about ADHD and BAME communities in the UK and action to ensure that those with ADHD are receiving appropriate care and support.
Please explain your answers to the questions as fully as possible, using anecdotes and evidence from your personal or professional experience where possible. Your responses will be completely confidential.
The deadline for this survey is 20th December 2013.
ROTA is a social policy organisation focused on issues impacting on Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities. You can find out more at www.rota.org.uk.
