Purchase Making the Grade with ADD
Bringing your ADHD to college can be a scary thing, but Making the Grade with ADD will ease your nerves. The book is designed to hold an ADHD reader’s interest. Each chapter includes worksheets that walk you through important tasks, from sticking to a budget to selecting a major.
My favorite tool is the sleep-log worksheet: You keep track of when you took medication, went to bed, and woke up, and note how well-rested you felt each time until you perfect your sleep routine.
Making the Grade with ADD covers everything from financial aid to finding a job. Start reading it in high school and keep it with you through graduation.
