What is ADHD?
ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a disorder affecting 2-8 % of college students that starts in childhood and may persist until adulthood. It can manifest as difficulty paying attention, distractibility, hyperactivity, impulsivity or a combination of these symptoms. Untreated ADHD can lead to poor academic outcomes as well as difficulties with relationships. An evaluation with a mental health provider or medical provider along with neuropsychological testing will help you determine if you have ADHD. Therapy, coaching, academic accommodations, and if needed, medication can help students with ADHD perform better in school.
