ADVOCACY BEGINS AT HOME
by Robert M. Tudisco, Esq.
While going off to college and becoming independent is difficult for all adolescents, it can be particularly difficult for students with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
This is true for many reasons:
College is far less structured than high school and the lack of structure and accountability can be a recipe for disaster to an adolescent with AD/HD.
In most cases class attendance is not enforced, and there is much less performance feedback until midterm and final examinations.
Many of these students have never managed their medication and/or their lives and are unprepared to do so on their own.
