Consider these Accommodation Questions
When Helping Students and Employees

Below on this page are some great questions that can be presented to an employer or a school teacher. It is also a good thing to read if you have ADHD to learn how the disorder affects you.

I remember having problems at one of my jobs. I did a lot of typing and I had a quota to meet. I wasn't doing to well and I told my boss about my condition. It didn't mean anything to her because either I made it or I was out the door.

I eventually found a new job and left. I could have talked to HR but I wasn't happy there in the 3 years that I worked for the company.

If you are a supervisor trying to learn about the condition, I want to say thank you. Since you are learning how you can help your employees with ADHD, I know that you care about them.

That is more than what most supervisors even care to do. Once again, thank you for your desire to learn and help.

ADHD Accommodation Questions to Consider:
  1. What limitations is the employee/student with the learning disability experiencing?
  2. How do these limitations affect the employee/student and the employee's/student's job/school performance?
  3. What specific job tasks are problematic as a result of these limitations?
  4. What accommodations are available to reduce or eliminate these problems? Are all possible resources being used to determine possible accommodations?
  5. Has the employee/student with the learning disability been consulted regarding possible accommodations?
  6. Once accommodations are in place, would it be useful to meet with the employee/student with the learning disability to evaluate the effectiveness of the accommodations and to determine whether additional accommodations are needed?
  7. Do supervisory/teaching personnel and employees/student need training regarding learning disabilities?
