Going off to college is a big transition. One that’s stressful, exciting, and scary.
With tuitions soaring, earning a degree requires a huge commitment of time and money. And yet, so many ADHD students are unsure of so many things: courses to take, how to manage the workload, and where to get help.
Knowing that ADHD impacts focus, follow-through, memory, listening skills, time management, and addictive behaviors, it’s easy to see why even the smartest people with ADHD can struggle in College and University.
Earning A Degree With ADHD guides you through the risks and challenges ADHD students face as they enter college - away from home, on their own, without the structure of parents and high school.
In this one hour program, 15 ADHD specialists and educators address a wide range of concerns and questions, including:
- ADHD accommodations for in-class, studying, and taking exams.
- Advocating with Student Services to receive the accommodations you need.
- Effective Study Strategies that are proven to help with memory and retention. And some popular Study Strategies that don’t make a difference.
And finally, host Rick Green offers a surprising suggestion for students who are struggling to decide, ‘ What do I want to do with my life?’. It’s advice that could save you tens of thousands of dollars and years of wasted effort.
