How Our Method Works

MethodADHD creates transition problems for students in high school -  if left unaddressed these problems only become worse in college.

We have researched and isolated these transition problems - the ADHD related barriers to academic success and independent functioning in college.  From this research we have created a solution that we call the Principles of College Success, and developed a highly-experiential, interactive, intensive residential group workshop that effectively teaches these Principles.

Many of these ideas aren’t new. What is unique is how we tailor them for the way people with ADHD integrate information; how they learn.  Our program teaches students how to bring themselves into a dynamic state of high motivation and manage their lives there so that they don’t drop into the abyss of chaos.  Students incorporate our 10 proven Principles which are simple to learn, easy to integrate, straightforward to use, and effortless to remember.

The training addresses many issues that students need to master to be successful in college, including:

  • Anxiety and stress management
  • Critical Thinking Skills
  • Self monitoring
  • Identifying personal motivating strategies
  • Balancing college life demands
  • Maintaining focus, health, and energy
  • Empowering creativity
  • Self Advocacy
  • Problem Solving
  • Reframing Academic beliefs and self concept
We teach these Principles in a 3-day intensive residential workshop that we hold monthly, during which the students do the work of removing lingering obstacles to their success, firmly incorporating and integrating the Principles into their success strategies, and developing a plan of action which builds on their strengths and alerts them to potential problem areas.  During the workshop, students connect with a Academic Coach who can continue to work with them on this plan once they reach college.
