Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This study showed that a seven-week intervention reduced stress and ADHD symptoms and enhanced performance and satisfaction with desired occupational roles in a sample of 25 women with ADHD. Intervention addressed (a) routines supporting desired roles, (b) organization of physical environments, (c) time and stress management, and (d) regulation of sensory stimulation. The study provides pilot evidence that OT services can be considered as adjunctive to counseling and medication.
