ADHD at School

Adhd/SPD & College
Keywords:


I have a junior daughter in high school & we are starting to prepare for college. I am wondering if anyone could point me in any directions for resources for kids w/ adhd/spd & college? Are there any papers I need to have for the college? Are there any special scholarships, grants, programs? I guess just any information at this point wink she does quite well and is medicated. She has good grades. However I am nervous about this transition, (obviously) self regulation, living on her own, time management etc… I am wondering if there is any help available to these types of students. Thank you for any input and thoughts, i so appreciate it! Oh- we do not have an IEP. I have not “had to” push that button, though,  i have come close. It is really hard to get help at the HS level for those kids that can maintain good grades. Thx

Hi bugnhop!

ADDitude Magazine offers a page full of resources for transitioning an ADHD student from high school to college: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd-guide/college.html. As well, there’s an article called, “How to Prepare Your ADHD Student for College,” that offers several great tips: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/702.html.

It sounds like she has a great foundation of treatment success to work from, which will be a real blessing.
