Access to Work

Neurodiversity is a wonderful thing; however, it is often misunderstood and can sometimes be problematic in the workplace. This is particularly the case with invisible disabilities like ADHD.

 

Employees and business owners with ADHD often report feeling overwhelmed, over-burdened and unsupported. They struggle with setting boundaries, delegating, managing others, prioritising, scheduling, writing emails and reports, timekeeping, sensory sensitivities, and staying on top of paperwork and clutter.

 

Coupled with Rejection Sensitivity Disorder (RSD) this can lead to a degradation in their performance, an inability to manage their emotions, insomnia, and a loss of confidence. Not surprisingly, without support, this can result in poor mental health, sickness and frequent absence from work leading to a prolonged and painful exit from the workplace.

Therefore, the government created Access to Work!
