Making the Grade With ADD: A Student's Guide to Succeeding in College With Attention Deficit Disorder Reviews
This book provides great information for any freshman looking for knowledge and strategies to succeed with AD/HD in college. Even if you just want general info about AD/HD as it pertains to a college student this book would be a good resource for you.
Very helpful suggestions and recommended resources we were able to employ for our son who just started college in a very competitive program. With hindsight, many of them seem like common sense, but when you are walking this terrain for the first time and are feeling overwhelmed, many of the ideas don't come to you.
I am a pediatric occupational therapist as well as a mom of 2 boys with ADHD. I bought this book for my son who is a senior, however, I have used it for my clients as well, even younger ones. It has great resource information in a very easy to read format regarding medication, college choice and application process, things to look out for that are common pitfalls, etc. Provides sources to back up information. One suggestion. Buy this book between your child's sophomore and junior year in highschool. The parent should read it first, then give it to their child. Good info for both parties. Lots of food for thought.
My mom and I read the whole thing. It was mostly information we had already learned from me growing up with ADHD but some of it was very interesting and informed us on options about medication and my legal rights within the school system. Definitely would recommend it for people going into college.
I loved this book, and it holds a lot of really good resources. The only thing I didn't like is that I wish there was more. I know the author made a point to make the book short so that someone with ADD/ADHD can have an easy time tackling it, but I can handle more info. The author also goes around and gives lectures and conventions, and I'm half-thinking about going to one. She has a lot of schooling and experience specifically in the ADD realm, rather than just psychology, in general.
Well written and a great help. My daughter's grades improved from all these lessons.
Great information! I wish I would have had this book when I was in college. Great study tips as well as other tricks to help you stay focused and be more successful. My son should get a lot of use out of it.
Great material for my kids to help them adjust to college!
