adult adhd individual and workplace support

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
is a developmental disorder that begins in early
childhood, affecting 1 in every 20 Australians.

In recent years, we have seen a rise in the number of Australians being diagnosed with ADHD as adults. ADHD affects your brain’s executive functioning — and your ability to self-regulate and control thoughts, words, actions and emotions. (

Occupational Therapy can be a valuable and holistic approach for assisting adults with ADHD and ASD in managing their mental health, as well as for employers managing this in the workplace.

Our Occupational Therapists can help support individuals to remain at work or return to work by providing:

  • routine and structure – establish daily routine for those struggling with organisation and time management and create structured environment to provide a sense of predictability and stability reducing anxiety and improving overall wellbeing
  • sensory integration – identify sensory processing challenges and preferences and help to regulate sensory input
  • self-regulation – develop self-regulation techniques and awareness of emotional states to support manage emotional regulation
  • occupational engagement - find meaningful and purposeful activities essential for mental health
  • environmental modifications - make adjustments to physical environmental to improve functioning
  • time management strategies – use of visual schedules, timers and other tools to stay organised and on track
  • collaboration with other professionals – as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Delivered by highly skilled Occupational Therapists, this support can be accessed by individuals via NDIS plans or through direct referrals by individuals and workplaces wanting to support their employees.
