ADHD is a neurobiological condition that is very much misunderstood and underdiagnosed. Fortunately, awareness of ADHD and its unique impact on the brain and associated behaviours are growing and neurodiversity is rapidly finding a place on the workplace agenda. However, a need for education about this unique condition and effective support is essential if employers want to engage and retain their employees with ADHD.
Legislation requires that reasonable adjustments are made for individuals with ADHD. However, too often, the adjustments made by employers are ill-informed and consequently lack maturity, oversimplify the problem and ultimately become counter-productive towards delivering a constructive and meaningful solution for these often bright and talented individuals. Their challenges cannot be addressed if they are not truly understood.
This free VRA webinar will explore how ADHD presents within adults in the workplace, what obstacles they face and most importantly, what they need in order to stay motivated and engaged. By the end of the hour participants will have a far deeper understanding of ADHD and how the divide can be bridged through ADHD coaching and other supports and techniques tailored to the unique brain wiring of these individuals – reasonable adjustments that actually work.
