ADHD:  Finding Academic Success by Overcoming Challenges

One of the most serious challenges faced by teens and young adults is regarding educational outcomes.

High School

  • Experience significantly higher retention rate (42%).
  • More are suspended (60%).
  • Highest drop-out rate (32%).

College

  • Fewer enter college (22%).
  • Lower GPA (1.7).
  • Lower graduation rate (5%).

These intervention strategies remediate situations.

  • Find a “good fit” for teachers/professors.
  • Focus on the ability and use of specific, individual accommodations.
  • Reiterate that there is a shared responsibility for learning.
  • Integrate apps to increase understanding and independence.
  • Adjust schedule to exploit energy levels.
  • Use a variety of behavior management techniques (both student and teacher/professor).
