The ADDapt Program’s Educational Assistance Component:
School Survival & Success Skills for Students with ADHD
Children with ADHD are at increased risk for other disorders, including academic handicaps such as learning disabilities. However, even children with ADHD without learning disabilities still have difficulties in school. In fact, even a very intelligent child can have school difficulties due to their ADHD. Symptoms of the disorder include inattentiveness, poor organizational skills, forgetfulness, and difficulties staying on task and completing work. Such symptoms almost sound like a recipe for school failure.
Through the ADDapt Program, you can receive a comprehensive educational evaluation for your child. If learning disabilities are diagnosed, the ADDapt Program will assist you with what you need to know to obtain the necessary special education services your child might require. The ADDapt Program will also teach you how to be an educational advocate for your child. We will develop educational interventions tailored to your child’s individual learning style and educational needs, and show you techniques so you can act as parent tutor and maximize your child’s educational potential.
The ADDapt Program also offers a specialized educational group: School Survival & Success Skills for Students with ADHD.
