What are assistive tools? An assistive tool is anything that allows individuals to be more successful at completing daily tasks or participating in activities that they typically have great difficulty doing because of their disability. Assistive tools can be simple or complex, ranging from products such as fidget toys and timers to software and modified office furniture. Assistive tools can help individuals with ADHD stay organized, on task, find their belongings, stay focused, and be more efficient.
CanLearn has developed a resource on assistive tools for ADHD. It is available for download.
