ADHD in College and University

It is not uncommon for students with ADHD to have more difficulty managing their symptoms of ADHD in college or university. They may feel unprepared because they succeeded in high school and faced very few hurdles in the past. By mid-October, students often notice increased worries and difficulties when required to engage in self-regulated and active learning. They face unstructured schedules, multiple deadlines and increased academic demands in reading and writing. Some may have difficulty regulating their attention to tasks that require increased effort. Students present with motivation, attention and procrastination issues which are inevitably interfering with their academic performance. Students in college and university are challenged by new obstacles that may not have been present in their part-time job or high school. They must attempt to adapt to their new environment.

To make a successful transition to college and university, we invite our students and clients to come up with creative ways and strategies to address their roadblocks.  Every student has strengths and the capacity to make changes to their study habits and lifestyles. With a bit of help, students can choose strategies tailored to their learning style and abilities. I recently came upon this great resource by Peg Dawson and Richard Guare: The Smart but Scattered Guide to Success: How to Use Your Brain’s Executive Skills to Keep Up, Stay Calm, and Get Organized at Work and at Home. Have a look and consult it or contact us for further support.
