Mr. Hans van de Velde



Hans van de Velde為非牟利組織ADHD Europe的副主席,於2018年選入該組織董事會成員。他是荷蘭讀寫障礙協會主席、Impuls & Woortblind董事會成員,並在2009年起成為科學委員會協會主席。


Hans為患有ADHD、自閉症、閱讀障礙等擁有「特殊大腦」的員工擔任教練工作。他於1998年在荷蘭鹿特丹成立公司—Equisto,公司願景是希望ADHD的特質不會在人類成年後消失,公司專注為僱主及僱員提供專業指導。


Hans在其小學和中學生涯經歷過艱苦日子,當時未被確診患有閱讀障礙。他從小已進入社會工作,16歲時成為清潔公司老闆的助理,第二份工作是從事法院的文員,後來在該法庭上成為法律文書處理及法律軟件方面的首批專家之一,並於1989年獲得法律碩士學位。在此期間,Hans因焦慮問題而身心俱疲並接受長時間治療,期後成為培訓師/治療師,並確診患有閱讀障礙及ADHD症狀。


Hans van de Velde is the vice president of ADHD Europe. In 2018, he was elected in the Board of ADHD Europe. Before he has been president of the Dutch dyslexia association and board member of Impuls & Woortblind, the association for people with ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia etc. From 2009 on he is the chair of the Science Committee of this association.


His current job is being a coach, amongst others for employees with ‘special brains’ like ADHD, autism, dyslexia and giftedness. He founded his company – Equisto – in Rotterdam in 1998 from the vision that brain properties like ADHD don’t just disappear in adulthood. Hans‘ company specialises in ‘people-at-work’ and offers professional guidance to employers and their employees, with a multidisciplinary approach and a focus on the talents of workers with these brain properties.


Hans’ interest in special brains stems from his own experience. After the usual hard years in primary and secondary school without being recognised as having dyslexia, he started working next to school at an early age. He cleaned offices, and at sixteen became assistant of the owner of the cleaning company. His second job was clerk to the court of justice. Later on in this court he became one of the first experts in legal text-processing and software in law. Next to his job, he studied law and got his masters in 1989.


In this period he got a burnout with anxiety problems. After a long period of therapy he did a three year education as trainer/therapist. And some years later, at last he got his diagnosis dyslexia and ADHD.
