Is your ADHD child ready for college?

For us parents with kids who need a bit more extra help and attention than some other children, sometimes we forget that one day, very soon, our child will be a young adult and ready to head out to the real world, or rather, that place that is not quite home and not quite the real world, called college. Preparing for that day, is something that you should start doing when your kid’s a freshman in high school if not sooner! Skills like doing the laundry, paying bills and making something to eat don’t just magically appear if mom or dad take care of all that until the day you’re moving your precious off-spring into their dorm room.

If your child has ADHD or any other learning disability, college is going to be challenging enough without having to figure out how to use a washing machine or balance your checkbook!
