Head Start on College
"My son never works to his potential the first few weeks of each school year. I'm worried that a slow start will be harder to recover from in college. How can I help him break this pattern?"
Encourage him to attend a course at a local community college to maintain his study skills over the summer. Also, contact the disabilities office at his school now to make sure he'll receive tutoring, mentoring, or other support services in the fall. You'll probably need to provide documentation attesting to his ADHD.
