How To Accommodate ADHD Employees or Students

I found a non ADHD website with some valuable information about learning disabilities. The information is not specific to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder but there are many things we can learn from it.

I am copying and pasting most of the information. Their link is at the bottom of the page if you would like to visit them. The title is, "Accommodating Employees with Learning Disabilities".

It is good to read to learn how to accommodate ourselves or for those who want to help someone with ADHD.

It has good suggestions how we can help ourselves. We can not let people label us and then give up. I talk to people who have ADHD and that is their crutch. They feel that they are limited in what they can accomplish because of their disorder. We have to learn about ourselves to help ourselves. It is also good for those who want to help us to learn with us.

Social Skills:

People with learning disabilities may have difficulty exhibiting appropriate social skills on the job. This may be the result of underdeveloped social skills, lack of experience/exposure in the workforce, shyness, intimidation, behavior disorders, or low self-esteem.

This can affect the person's ability to adhere to conduct standards, work effectively with supervisors, or interact with coworkers or customers.
