One of the most important, but challenging transitions in life occurs when the student with ADHD leaves home and heads off to college. The son or daughter of yours, who needed you to wake them up in the morning, feed them, get them to school on time, made sure they recorded their homework assignments, checked with their teacher to make sure homework was actually turned in, and organized the "boring part" of their lives isn't going to magically develop these skills when they reach college. That's where we can help
Our involvement in coaching students often begins in the 11th or 12th grade but it is not uncommon for us to help "put the pieces back together" in a student who is on academic probation after the first year of college. Step one is to make sure that the student's ability to sustain attention is sufficient.Step two is to look at the student's academic skills, teach them how to read and listen "with a purpose", how to use voice recognition and text reading software to help them complete assignments more rapidly, and how to plan, organize and remember to turn in papers.
We also help students identify colleges that provide counselors that will serve as their "administrative assistants", helping them to be "accountable" for breaking down assignments into parts so that they can complete tasks in a timely manner.
