Dr. Barbara Mather recently received an European Sociological Association (ESA) Honorarium Award for Her Presentation: ‘Early Career Experiences of Young Adults with ADHD’.

Here is a excerpt from the abstract:

In this qualitative research study, the challenges that young adults (ages 22-28) with ADHD experience in the workplace across the USA were analyzed and then categorized into four distinct types of workplace challenges.

I find this article so fascinating, and then I wonder: “Are they really that different from us in our earlier years?!
