The ADHD College Student’s Secret Weapon
For people who have ADHD, college can be particularly challenging. Entering college presents students with a wide range of new responsibilities. The overwhelming task of organizing the daily routine can be daunting at the same time where their previous support systems have been left behind. While most colleges are well equipped from the academic standpoint, the unique struggle students with ADHD can be particularly challenging.
For students with ADHD it is essential for them to put into practice routines that work for them. They need to navigate through a new world, but in most cases without any GPS to guide them. This is where a professional ADHD Coach can come into play. By having a trusted and well respected ADHD Coach in your list of contacts you can provide your ADHD students with a tool they otherwise would not have. The ADHD coach can give students the individual attention they need and allow the student to make improvements and adjustments throughout the school year as they encounter issues. This allows for a much smoother year and better outcome.
An ADHD Coach can help a college student with their study skills, timeliness, their schedule, their sleep, food and exercise habits as well as any other habits they may have picked up. Whatever the student is struggling with, they can strategize with their coach to find and implement a solution.
Coaching can help the student solve their own problems, find solutions that enable them to fit into the greater system of college, shift their attitudes from those based on anxiety or blame to attitudes that are more productive. Additionally, through coaching students can also work to improve their personal habits so they take care of themselves to be healthier and handle the pressure of midterms and finals.
