ADHD Support in the Workplace

For inclusive employers with a neurodiverse workforce, we offer support for your employees with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).


ADHD in the Workplace

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterised by inattentiveness, restlessness, and hyperactivity. People with ADHD may be disorganised and have difficulty concentrating on one task at a time. For this reason, it can be difficult for people with ADHD to perform well in traditional job interviews or with long term unstructured projects. However, people experience their traits differently and no person with ADHD is the same.

People with ADHD have unique skills that make them an asset to organisations, we support employers to ensure they are providing neurodiversity support and an inclusive environment for their employees to thrive and their organisation to grow.

Our ADHD Employment Support

At Exceptional Individuals, we provide workplace needs assessments to ensure the working environment and culture is suitable for employees with ADHD to utilise their valuable skills. Employers can access financial support through the Access to Work scheme to cover some, or all, of the costs of implementing our recommendations.

We offer workplace mentoring for employees with ADHD. We help them identify and enhance strengths and work through challenges such as focus, task management, and scheduling.

We also provide neurodiversity consultancy services for employers looking to support their employees and make the most of their talent pool.

Top tips for Employers

Harness passion
People with ADHD can be incredibly creative, enthusiastic and innovative. Their unique perspective enables them to bring new energy to projects and can drive teamwork forward. We recommend working with your employee to identify what energises them so they can utilise their talents and stay motivated in work.
Implement structure
Sit down with your employee when they first start and discuss the work style that suits them. This may include providing an easy to follow work agenda which will make tasks clearer to understand. Another example is to break down spontaneous tasks into little chunks with agreed goals.
Minimise distraction
People with ADHD may prefer to limit distraction in their working environment. This can aid with focus, attention, and memory. Talk openly with your employee about the environment they are working in, and work together to agree on any changes such as desk position, lighting, or clutter, which could make their working environment more comfortable.
