Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a neuro-developmental disorder which starts in early childhood and often remains a life-long condition. Research shows that the global rate of ADHD is aprox. 5% in children – 3% in adulthood. Adults with ADHD may have issues in the workplace such as lack of time-management and priority setting, etc which can be managed by workplace accommodations. In this short video course a brief overview will be discussed, some suggestions for accommodations made and more resources offered including video links and support group contacts.
