ADHD at Work
Inattentive accomodations at work?
Long story but i work in an industry where being a few minutes late is a big deal (not necessarily to my personal position and ability to get my work done, but in the culture of the organization - so everyone must be held to the same rules). My position is coordinating a program, meeting with people, managing the day-to-day in the office, etc.
After a lot of consultation, discussion, etc., I am documenting my ADD - Inattentive Type at work.
Has anyone else done this and if so, what type of accomodations are typical? I am PT at 30 hrs so I do come in later most days but still not making it many days. (I’m not 30 min late, but often 10-15)...
I have a very supportive boss & EAP but need to find some ideas as it is not something they see everyday. I have ADD Inattentive NOT hyperactive.
Also talking with my psychiatry NP on Saturday to discuss and she asked if I could come with some suggestions that might be useful for my workplace.
