ADD and the College Student: A Guide for High School and College Students with Attention Deficit Disorder

ADD and the College Student: A Guide for High School and College Students with Attention Deficit Disorder
by Patricia O., Md. Quinn

Useful for addressing the existence of attention deficit disorder beyond the hyperactivity of childhood, this reassuring book frankly covers the realities and logistics of having ADD. It serves as a helpful guide to selecting and entering college and to succeeding there. Various professionals (physicians, psychologists, educators, and lawyers) and "real life" experts (college students and parents) describe the challenge of ADD and its impact on the college experience in short, lucid chapters. Throughout, the underlying message is that students should recognize the limitations that ADD presents and seek help in finding remedies for their particular problems. Individual sections address the manifestations of ADD, cover various treatments, outline college programs, consider learning accommodations that students might utilize, and review ADD students' legal rights. Good for students (still in high school or new to college), for parents (who are coping with the angst of an adolescent as well as an ADD student), and for high-school and college faculty and administrators in need of some straight talk about ADD. This guidebook is practical, realistic, optimistic, and reassuring for both teens and adults. Irene Wood --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer

Patricia Quinn, MD has put together a helpful, concise, easy-to-read book that addresses the problems which may develop for students in high school and college. Each chapter is written by a different specialist who offers information on their specific topic. I recommend this book to all my ADD teenaged clients whether or not they want to go on to college. It is an extremely helpful resource. --

5 out of 5 stars Very helpful for student and parent, March 2, 1999

  Reviewer: A reader

This book helped identify gifted students with ADD who were not doing well in college. The checklist included was helpful for the student in his consultation with the physician who was treating his ADD. The physician liked the checklist so much that he asked to copy it for his files! --
