ADHD and College and Higher Education
improving reading comprehension
While, I have been relatively successful in work and school I have always struggled with reading comprehension, primarily due to difficulty in maintaining attention while reading. This either prevents me from completing required reading, or not being able to recall anything about what I just finished reading. I am currently taking focalin which has helped with my ADD symptoms in general but I still struggle with reading comprehension. I have tried different speed reading methods in the hope that reading faster will help me improve my focus but with little success. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how they have tried to improve their ability to focus while read and what has work or not worked.
