ADD and the College Student

Patricia Quinn, M.D., a noted authority on ADD has collected a series of helpful essays for college-bound students with ADD and their parents.  Thomas Applin, explains how ADD affects high school students, which is distinct from the impact in elementary and middle school.  Specifically, older students must begin to accept their diagnoses and take control of their learning issues before making the transition to college.  Nancy Ratey describes how the right eating, sleeping, and exercise habits can significantly impact and improve school performance.  Other topics addressed include medications, working with a coach, and using campus resources among others.  These short, readable essays provide thought-provoking observations that can be used to initiate healthy conversations with teens.
