13 Survival Tips from College Graduates with ADHD

College is not a time to wait and see what happens. It is a time to plan, prepare, and anticipate every conceivable ADHD-related challenge. Begin by following these guidelines for teens leaving the house and living independently for the first time. They could save you a lot of anguish — and money.

Build Your Own Support System

College is a unique time and a challenge for everyone. Putting together a support system for when things get tough can be a life-saver. Find someone in the disabilities office who you can talk with about academic snafus. Hire a coach or talk with a campus counselor when you feel overwhelmed by your workload or campus life. Befriend someone in the on-campus health clinic that you can visit for med checks or health challenges.
