Just need some advice on how to interact and train someone with ADHD. I have been doing research online, but there is so much information and is overwhelming. I have asked the person, if my training style is okay and easy to understand. But I don’t know if she is being polite or telling the truth. Any help would be appreciated.
I’ve found my best mentors have been people that make you feel comfortable so you’re not afraid to ask really dumb questions
You don’t always know what part of the job is going to cause you difficulties until you actually get into it
And sometimes we just need a little extra time to find our own way to do it so patience is an absolute must
Also allowing us to do things in our own way is important because we all have our own coping strategies for our difficulties
People with ADHD are incredibly loyal so if you show them a little bit of kindness they’ll do their best to repay that kindness
Oh and if you’re giving them a lot of instructions it really needs to be step by step
break it down into smaller tasks once they’ve done the first bit then tell them the next step because sometimes we get overwhelmed by a lot of information and have a tendency to forget what you just said
Be prepared to repeat yourself a lot
Or write out a clear bullet point list that’s always helpful
It’s really good of you to try and help I’m sure it’ll be appreciated more than you’ll ever know

realisation: This is my first post. I believe a close relative of mine may have ADHD and I've never realised or understood the condition until I have started to look at the symptoms. I have joined because it would be good to hear opinions and experiences of others...
