Equal rights for people with neuropsychatric diagnosis like adhd and asperpergs!

I am a male swedish highscool teacher, 35years of age, diagnosed with asperger’s syndrome and adhd as an adult. Since I has chose to be open about my diagnosis to reduce predujice and sometimes get support from society I have been subjected to discrimination numerous times from among others: Swedish authorities, Swedish schools and Swedish counties. The treatment of people with these conditions is a true modern human rights disaster! On the 1st of may 2017 for the first time In my life, I therefore chose to march with a sign saying “equal rights despite ADHD, Asperger’s” to press the importance of these issues! I marched together with my dear comrades in the beautiful and sunny city of Borås in Sweden! Shortly after the march, I showed papers from Swedish Social Security Authorities denying me a disability equal to 25% reduction of full time working ability. Authorities mock me for having Asperger’s syndrome and consider that the right job for me would be something within my areas of interests, where I have little or no contact with people, and all days are predictable and free of stress! Please let met get back to this pressing and very important issue once again when I have time! By this post I hope to inspire other young social democats around in Europe to work for human rights for people who have conditions like Asperger’s, ADHD and so son. I also hope to inspire other grassroot politicians like me who also might have neuropsyhicatric conditions like ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, Dyslexia, Tourettes syndrome and so on to come foward and help in the struggle for equal rights!

Please let me get back to this forum in due time with, general suggestions in a positive sense, on how conditions for people with neuropsychiatric conditions can be improved in Europe using the thoughts and visions of social Europe. That way people with and without these conditions can work together to better these conditions in Europe, like my vision of what EU should be, people of all backgrounds working together towards common goals.

Now I let me post an update concercining my struggle against Swedish Social Security authorities and my personal struggle for people with ADHD and Aspergers’. I have have reported the Swedish Social Security office to a Swedish Authority, “Diskrimineringsombudsmannen” that oversees discrimination. So far this authority has not made contact with me to possibly further investigate my case, I’m very disappointed in the fact that this authority has not made contact with me since the discrimination I have been subjected to is of a serious nature and is committed by a large Swedish authority, There are two possible reasons for the authorities not pursing my case further, 1.Lack of resources, the have to prioritize cases where they have a good chance to win. 2.My case doesn’t all within the area of Swedish anti discrimination laws. If the reason is either number 1 or 2 they anti discrimination auhoritiy should have fowarded this case to antother Swedish Auhtoirity that oversees that Swedish authorities follows due process called “Justitie Ombudsmannen” As usual I will probably need to make a report for myself to “Justtite Ombudsmannen” and hope that they might be able to further look into my case. I have found a lawyer that can give me some legal advice concerning my application for disability currently the case is going to a court in Växjö called “Förvaltningsrätten i Växjö”. If the court will rule in my favor or not remains to be seen. If the would not rule in my favor the legal and human rights consequences are quiet severe. It would in practice mean that people who are teachers and have Aspergers’ syndrome and not entitled to freely choose jobs and can’t rely on the welfare system if they don’t have the capacity to work full time while teachers, who have some other type of disability such as a physical one still can rely on the welfare system. A few more of my comrades in the workers movement has thankfully realized that there is something wrong with the how the system in Sweden process applications for disability concerning neuropshyciatric disorders.

When it comes to discrimination on a more general level I have asked my fellow comrades to think about why people with Asperger’s are no longer allowed to have certain professions such as an engine driver and other professions. If nothing happens I will probably need to take address this issue in the International Labor Agency and other forums. I will also in time write to the appropriate forums in EU that deals with social security legislation and human rights concerning how I and others are treated by social security authorities in Sweden. The EU could be as a tool to prevent discrimination by introducing union wide anti discrimination laws that forbids discrimination of people with disabilities in the labor market. Of course these laws would need to have large fines to be effective. Therefore my suggestion is that if a corporation or organization is found guilty of discrimination in the labor market it would need to pay substantial fines both to the European union and the party that has been discriminated. I would also urge the European union to use funds from the European Social Fund to improve conditions in the labor market for people with neuropsychiatric disorders like Aspergers and ADHD. If I can prevent it I will not accepted to be discriminated against just because I have have Aspergers’ and ADHD. I will get back on this issue when something new happens and continue my personal struggle within this area. Regards Richard
