Its the third Monday in January and we all now back in work, so you might want to read this! If you’re ready to climb the corporate ladder but feel like someone tore the steps to success out of your company handbook, don’t worry. Adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often encounter procrastination, communication, and organization problems both professionally and personally, but that doesn’t have to mean you’re perpetually doomed to entry-level work.
If you have a child or know someone with a child with ADHD doing the Leaving Certificate and looking to progress to 3rd level, well then the Dare Scheme (lower points requirements) and Hear Scheme (financial assistance) could well be for you. These workshops are a great way to find out more about these schemes and we would recommend that go along to get more info, if you are interested!
I bought my second planner of the year today. Do not ask me where the first one is. I do not know.
I do know that I only used it once even though I loved it and, quite honestly, needed it.
My scattered thoughts and disorganized mind have never let me consistently use an organizational tool. I am going to try again, though.
It is just what happens when you have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. I was diagnosed in fourth grade and put on a drug called Focalin. It is a stimulant, much like Ritalin and Adderal, but it is less frequently prescribed.
If you need to get an exam accommodation for the Leaving or Junior Certificate, late applications are now open!
