In her 40s, Em Rusciano was diagnosed with ADHD

Em Rusciano is an Australian comedian, writer, singer, and radio and television presenter. She is well recognized for her appearance in season two of Australian Idol in 2004.

Em Rusciano addresses her ADHD Diagnosis

Em Rusciano, a comedian, recently discussed her battle to defend her attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism diagnoses, which she confirmed last year, at the National Press Club in Canberra. She continued by expressing her optimism that the rise in diagnosis was due to increased publicity rather than increased popularity.

Only a few months prior, the radio host lamented about the obstacles she encountered while attempting to persuade people of the validity of her diagnosis. In a video uploaded to Instagram, she vented her annoyance at “neurotypical people” who questioned the validity of her ailments. She also attacked those who think she is “making it up” or is merely claiming to have ADHD and autism to get attention.

Em Rusciano claimed at a speech at the National Press Club that getting a diagnosis for her ADHD was practically hard.

When she did, it left her with “an immense pain for that smart, curious and chaotic 10-year-old kid who badly wanted to get things right,” she later reflected. Because they don’t fit the stereotype of the “white hyperactive schoolboy disrupting the class,” she claims that many girls and marginalized members of the community go misdiagnosed.
