Success After High School for Students with ADHD
with Elizabeth Hamblet
Our culture dictates that our kids should go to college after high school in order to be successful adults. Yet, that isn’t true. Just as the misbelief that kids with ADHD and/or learning disabilities can’t succeed in college if they choose that path. In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with Learning Disabilities Consultant, Elizabeth Hamblet, to separate fact from fiction when it comes to ADHD and college, and learn how to help our kids transition after high school, into college or whatever endeavors they pursue. This episode is packed full of resources and information even parents of younger kids with ADHD need to know now, to prepare for the future. Listen in now!
“There needs to be a desire to go to college. Just sending somebody because that’s what’s expected is not going to be good for that student.” — Elizabeth Hamblet
