Preparing students with ADHD and LD for College

  • Are in college and struggling to get your feet grounded with less guidance and support from parents?
  • Have you been accepted into college program and want to learn ways to make the transition from high school?

Our Educators regularly helps teens and young adults with attention difficulties and learning differences. 

Marie, Mo and Jessica often recommend a wonderful resource for helping students transition into the wonderful yet very scary world of college: Ready for Take-Off: Preparing Your Teen with ADHD and LD for College by Theresa Laurie Maitland, Ph.D. & Patricia Quinn, MD. 


Ideally, we suggest that families read this book during the high school years and use some strategies as they plan for and implement this transition into college.

Other resources to learn self-advocacy and study skills can be found on ADD Warehouse or working with a professional.  We work with students in high school and college on preparing for and dealing with the transition to college as well as everything it brings with it.
