JAN Promotes Awareness of ADHD Accommodations

November 17, 2017 Resources

The newest post to the Job Accommodation Network’s blog focuses on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Awareness Month. This post by Melanie Whetzel (Lead Consultant on the Cognitive/Neurological Team) discusses implications of the 2017 theme, “Knowing Better: ADHD Across the Life Span“. Whetzel emphasizes that awareness of ADHD at all stages of the life course is important so that people can better understand how to self-advocate for accommodations at home, in school, and in the workplace. Her post highlights examples of challenging situations faced by employees with ADHD and potential solutions.
