The following are personal recommendations:

Women with Attention Deficit Disorder by Sari Solden (worth looking for it on ebay for cheap copies, or get on audiobook!)

But she also has a podcast and more to check out.

https://www.sarisolden.com/

Other great resources not mentioned on the call, but that I would like to recommend:

Jessica McBale’s How to ADHD YouTube channel – fun, well researched and bitesized – great to learn more but also share with those around us that might need ‘educating’

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-nPM1_kSZf91ZGkcgy_95Q

ADHD for Smart Ass Women podcast – for a boost in confidence!

https://toppodcast.com/podcast_feeds/adhd-for-smart-ass-women-with-tracy-otsuka/

Access To Work – government grant to support people with mental health conditions into or in work

https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work

Headstuff – coaching services, can help you with doing Access To Work forms too

https://www.headstuffadhdtherapy.co.uk/

Some useful resources on the ADHD UK website:

Diagnosis pathway – something you can send to your GP if they keep telling you that ADHD is only ‘for kids’ or such things

https://adhduk.co.uk/diagnosis-pathways/

Or send them to the NHS website that talks about adult ADHD!
