Ringing telephones, chatty co-workers, emails beeping, printers humming... and somehow you must get some real work done! There are several employment laws protecting employees with disabilities in the workplace, and sorting through these can be a challenge.

Those with ADHD can experience difficulties with time management, following directions, organization, procrastination, and many other skills crucial to workplace success. While help might be available, many of those with ADHD are uncomfortable revealing their diagnosis to their employers to receive the accommodations they need to perform successfully. In this presentation, a Human Resources Director with nearly forty years of experience in accommodating disabilities in the workplace, and with thirty-seven years of experience raising a young adult with ADHD and other challenges, will share practical strategies.

Those with ADHD can bring their personal strengths to the workplace, and with appropriate accommodations, can avoid or minimize the challenges resulting from ADHD. Practical and open discussion of these challenges, and identification of potential solutions is crucial to success.
