On August 27th, 2013, I have the privilege of speaking at the California HR Conference about young adults with ADHD that are entering the workplace.
Here is what I will be talking about:
The first generation of children growing up in the 1980′s and 1990′s with the official diagnosis of ADHD is now completing college and entering the workforce, yet few qualitative research studies examine the experiences of these young adults as they leave the safety of family homes or educational institutions.
This qualitative research study addressed the question of: What are some of the challenging work experiences as described by young adults with ADHD in a structured work environment? Young adults, ages 22-28 year old, from across the USA were interviewed to examine the types of challenges they experience in the workplace. Important findings have resulted from this study.
- Inform audience of this primary research conducted in 2012 on young ADHD adults in the workplace
- Present the types of challenging workplace experiences that young adults with ADHD have described
- Cite resources possible/common-sense accommodations or assistance to help ADHD adults in workplace
