AD/HD & Learning Differences
If you are a student with AD/HD, learning disabilities, or emotional needs, you might be tempted to go it alone in college and avoid seeking academic support and counseling services. It is critical for students to understand that the true mark of maturity is knowing where to find resources—and then to use them.
Take Charge of Your Education
Educational Advocates helps students find the college support programs and services that will best meet their needs—and put them on the path to academic success:
- Identify the Type of Support You Will Require. Based on your evaluations and history, we develop criteria for the academic and counseling support that you’ll need to reach your potential.
- Develop a Corresponding College List. With a detailed list of colleges that meet your needs, you can further explore your options to find the best matches.
- Understand the Process for Applying. We minimize stress by helping you understand the admissions process for both the college and the academic support service, including the concept of self-disclosing.
- Find Outside Resources. If the college is a good match but does not offer all the support you require, we will make every effort to help you find resources in the community such as psychiatrists, therapists, or executive function coaches.
We also offer specific services for the transition to college for students with AD/HD and learning differences. Learn more.
Did you know?
Many colleges require updated documentation of learning disabilities and AD/HD (within three years). Early in senior year, check to be sure that your testing is up-to-date and request a reevaluation if needed.
