CHADD of New York Presents:
ADHD in College Students
Mary V. Solanto, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, NYU School of Medicine
Monday, February 1st, 2016
Students with ADHD face particular challenges when they transition to college. They are now entirely responsible for “executive” self-management functions, including managing short and long-term assignments, structuring their time, and maintaining organization – functions that were previously supported by parents and teachers. Students also face many new distractions and temptations, for which they may not have yet developed adequate self-control.
In this presentation, you will learn
The challenges that college students with ADHD face with respect to time-management, organization, and planning
The impact that these challenges can have on academic performance – and student satisfaction
Some strategies for prioritizing and overcoming procrastination
The role of medication
Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn about College Students and ADHD.
