Should You Tell Your Employer That You Have AD/HD?

The previous post is one of many examples that show that having ADHD affects how one performs in the workplace. This article explains, with specific examples, that it may or may not be in one's best interest to disclose to an employer:

The answer is, it depends on the facts of the individual case. Generally, we recommend disclosure of AD/HD to an employer if (1) you can document AD/HD, and AD/HD is a disability under the law in your case, (2) you are qualified for the job, and (3) you need job accommodations that are reasonable.
The writers share instances when you should not disclose ADHD along with when and how to disclose.
