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

The tasks of analyzing, thematically coding, and synthesizing volumes of data collected—or in this case, hundreds of pages of transcribed interview results—are streamlined and more rapidly performed when data analysis software is utilized. The ease in which to recode data in multiple iterations allowed the researcher to discover additional important information about her participants not directly related to the research question of: What are some of the challenging work experiences as described by young adults with ADHD in a structured work environment? 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.
