Has your young adult with ADHD just started college? Or is your teenager entering her senior year of high school and you're wondering what academic resources there are to support her next year when she goes to college?

Young adults affected by ADHD have new, and sometimes difficult, freedoms and responsibilities in that first year of college. They also have many options for support on campus, but many don't know what's available or where to begin to get help to be successful.

Dr. Theresa Maitland has spent the past 20 years helping high school and college students with ADHD and learning disabilities get ready for college. Her work has helped students develop self-management and study skills to be successful once they are there. Dr. Maitland has tips for how to use the time in high school to better prepare for the transition between high school and college.

Theresa E. Laurie Maitland has a career of more than 40 years, working as a special education teacher, a professor, and a director and co-founder of a private clinic for individuals with ADHD and LD. For the past 20 years she has worked with college students with ADHD / LD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
