Wow. Thank you, Fire Moons and Mary.n.ben, for your perspectives. As a parent of a college student with ADHD, sometimes it’s hard to know how to be there for him without coming across as pushy or judging. My son has a current “update” of his inattentive ADHD diagnosis and many suggestions from the report for accommodations that could almost certainly help him. But he refuses to ask for them because he fears he will be labeled as “less than.” Any suggestions? From a parent’s perspective, it’s hard to watch someone you love deliberately refuse help that you know would be beneficial.
