ADDA is ADHD at Work!

As our grand finale of ADHD Awareness Month, ADDA is launching a new website today! This Website, ADHD at Work (adhdatwork.add.org,) was built specifically to help employees and employers navigate the complexities of adult ADHD at work. The website offers constructive advice for those living with the condition while attempting to succeed in the world of work.

Created by the ADDA Workplace Issues Committee, the Website took more than six months to create. ADHDatWork.add.org presents quality information, filtered and verified as factual and relevant, for employers, employees and entrepreneurs. The team of volunteers, led by ADHD Coach Linda Walker, PCC, has been hard at work to provide answers and advice for people facing issues they’re all too familiar with.

Today’s article comes from an interview I conducted with Linda Walker about the new Web site and her experiences as a wife, mother and coach of adults dealing with ADHD in the workplace.

ADHD Awareness Month is coming to a close. Every October, there’s a flurry of activity surrounding ADHD. ADDA always offers exciting new resources, such as the TADD Talks (which, through popular demand, has inspired the launch of a new podcast) and the new ADHD at Work Web site.

Even more exciting about ADHD Awareness Month, however, are the conversations started and connections made throughout the month. After ADHD Awareness Month, the rest of the world goes back to ignoring adult ADHD, but here at ADDA, we work to increase awareness and knowledge of adult ADHD all year long. If you love the feeling of inclusion and connection that comes with every ADHD Awareness Month, and you’d like that feeling to last all year long, I highly recommend you join us. Join ADDA as a member, and even better, join us as a volunteer.

Sincerely,

Michelle Teel
