Hidden Resources?

I know it’s a small sample size, but when running my group for 16 adults with ADHD this week, I was surprised that no one had heard of two remarkable resources relevant to those with ADHD.  Given this, I wondered how many other adults with ADHD are unaware of these resources…

The first is understood.org (here) for “learning and attention issues.”  What it offers is vast and, though, it’s targeted to parents of children and teens with ADHD, many adults with ADHD can find it of use.  Much of what’s suggested for teens will apply to adults, except for the context (e.g., work vs. school).  Also, given that 25-35% of parents of youth with ADHD are likely to have ADHD (source), parents using the site may want to use the recommendations for themselves as well as their children.

The second resource is JAN, Job Accommodation Network (here), which is all about workplace accommodations for employers and employees needing or wanting to know what the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) encompasses, including job coaches…even the possibility of free ones.  Who knew? From what I can tell, fewer than would have liked to have known.

I hope something here is of use to you.
