Many adolescents face challenges transitioning from high school to college, but the abrupt loss of parental support and increased demands for self-management especially impact young adults with ADHD. Preparing students with ADHD for college should start well before they step on campus and it should focus on improving executive functioning skills (e.g., organization, time management, planning).
Expert Kevin Antschel will review the latest research on preparing high school students for college and managing ADHD once in college to increase the odds of successful academic and social outcomes.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How parents can help their high school students develop skills to ease the college transition
- Specific services, accommodations, and interventions that benefit college students with ADHD
- How to reduce stimulant diversion and engagement in risky behaviors (substance use)
- How to mitigate the negative impact of comorbid depression in college
- Strategies for accessing services and accommodations on college campuses
