Here’s the mini survival guide every ADHD student needs

Navigating high school can be a wild ride for any student, but for those with ADHD, the journey can feel like trying to surf a tsunami. The constant barrage of assignments, social pressures, and time management challenges can leave even the most resilient students feeling overwhelmed and defeated. In the spirit of ADHD Awareness Month, let’s explore some ways teens with ADHD can succeed in and out of the classroom.

  • Help your teen take advantage of classroom accommodations, such as individualized education plans or tutoring.
  • Practice organizational skills to stay on top of assignments and deadlines.
  • Study with them so they can build good study habits.
  • Know who your teen is spending time with and how their peers might be influencing their thoughts and behaviors.
  • Develop coping strategies with your teen for when life feels overwhelming.
