Hi guys,

I've been advised this afternoon that my application for the QLD Police Service may be held back due to my ADD. I have been cleared by the QPS PEMS provider and by my specialist, (Dr Warlow Mt Gravatt), but apparently what they failed to tell me in the 5+ calls I made to the recruitment department before I started my Justice Diploma or submitted my application, was that ADD/ADHD is on their list of "medical exclusions"...

Now, they haven't knocked me back yet, but I'm wanting the name of a big time specialist, someone whose preferably published that can review me and sign off on me being ok.

I'm on a very low dose (10mg/day) of Ritalin, and have been signed off twice by my specialist and want to be proactive about getting this sorted.

Any recommendations? The more letters behind his/her name the better.

Have you tried calling ADDULT in NSW?
They're pretty clued in to who can do what for whom as far as adhd goes, so it might be worth a shot.
Other than that good luck with it.
