At Leantime, we’re all about making our product as accessible as possible. In this article, we’re gonna dive into the ADHD-friendly project management features we offer. Get ready to learn more about ADHD, cognitive accessibility, and how our system tackles these needs like a pro.
What is ADHD and How Do You Build a System for Cognitive Accessibility? #
Cognitive accessibility refers to the design and implementation of products that are inclusive and easily usable by individuals with diverse cognitive abilities such as ADHD. At Leantime, we build those products.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that can make it tricky to stay motivated with tasks that feel overwhelming or uninteresting. But don’t worry! Leantime tackles these challenges head-on by building features that are intuitive, efficient, and boost dopamine. Dopamine is the hormone people with ADHD can struggle with so we make sure to prioritize long-term plans that keep motivation levels up.
However, what’s most important to Leantime is being a tool that is easy to use. We get that overwhelmed and totally-stuck feeling that results from a complex system. That’s why we’ve put a lot of effort into making sure there are no big hurdles to overcome in our system. We keep things simple and straightforward, because we know that’s the key to helping you stay productive and avoid that dreaded task paralysis.
