Recommendations for occupational therapy interventions for adults with ADHD: A consensus statement from the UK Adult ADHD network

“Sensory Integration theory links neurological processes to functional behaviour, whereby sensations from within an individuals body and their environment are processed to enable them to participate in everyday life.” Adamou et al 2021

The consensus aims to provide practical guidance to occupational therapy professionals working with adults with ADHD, drawing on the scientific literature and the professional experience of the authors. To achieve this, professionals specialising in ADHD, convened in London at an experts workshop called “Occupational Therapy and Adult ADHD” on the 10th February 2017.

The event was hosted by the UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN). UKAAN is an organisation founded in 2009 by a group of mental health specialists in response both to the NICE guidelines and to recommendations from the British Association for Psycho-pharmacology that aims to provide support, education, research and training for mental health professionals working with adults with ADHD.

Presentations on the 10th February written by Occupational Therapists Kath Smith and Dr Teresa May-Benson informed this consensus statement.
