Ready for Take-Off: Preparing Your Teen with ADHD or LD for College

by Theresa L. Maitland, Ph.D. and Patricia Quinn, MD


In today's world, getting accepted to college is only half of the battle. Staying in there is another matter altogether. And for students with ADHD or learning disabilities, staying, thriving, and graduating from college can be very challenging even for the most academically prepared students.
Ready for Take-Off lays out a plan to keep students with ADHD or LD in college by first teaching parents to prepare their teen for take-off and their first solo flight away from the home.

This essential resource encourages parents to adopt a unique "coaching-style" approach in their parenting and urges parents to stop micromanaging their teen's day-to-day life. Using college readiness surveys and handy worksheets, parents can objectively determine if they are playing a productive or nonproductive role in their teenager's life and learn ways to promote self-determination, daily living and academic skills by using the time in high school to help their teen be ready for take-off.
