1. College Academic Success with ADD
People with ADD/ADHD have difficulty with executive functioning, which impacts implementation and monitoring of their academic plans. Since these skills don't come naturally to us, we need to explicitly plan our road to academic success in college. Here are some pointers on how to do that.
2. A College Syllabus and Students with ADD
Students who have not been exposed to the syllabus in previous educational settings might think that it is just another piece of paper. They would be wrong! A syllabus is an essential tool for any college student, but especially for a student with Attention Deficit Disorder.
3. Finding Focus with Color
There are times when I am stressed out or trying to work through a complex problem. With Attention Deficit Disorder, either of those things can be difficult. I need an adult fidget. I want something that allows me to fidget and also hook into my creativity. Coloring a mandala does that for me!
4. Brain Development Delays Cause ADD
A large new brain imaging study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, builds on earlier, studies to remove the stigma from ADD. These MRI brain imaging studies show visible differences in the brains of people with ADD. ADD is not caused by poor parenting or kids who don't care about their behavior!

Building and maintaining strong relationships with the ones that we love is an important part of a satisfying life. When Attention Deficit Disorder is part of the equation, life can get complicated. ADD can also be a blessing by leading to playfulness and creativity in loving relationships.

7. Advocating Effectively for a Child with ADD
Addressing your child's educational needs as soon as possible increases the chances for better educational outcomes for that child. Statistics show that many of our students with Attention Deficit Disorder delay their high school degree by dropping out of high school. Early intervention is a must.
