What is this webinar about?

The symptoms of ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) cause functional impairments across several domains, including the workplace. According to the minimal research in this area people with ADHD tend to quit or lose their jobs more often and take more time off work than their non-ADHD peers. Reluctance to disclose their diagnosis at the time of employment due to the stigma associated with their condition, they are prevented from requesting simple accommodations, thus limiting their chances of excelling at work. There is a need for education around ADHD in the human resources sector to encourage disclosure and facilitate appropriate accommodations.

This presentation will include:

  • a brief overview of ADHD
  • typical challenges that occur in the workplace for those with the diagnosis
  • strengths associated with ADHD and how they can be leveraged by employers
  • appropriate workplace adjustments for ADHD
  • disclosure and confidentiality in the workplace
