The Challenge of Life Transitions for Young Adults with ADHD

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of presenting a workshop at the CHADD Regional Conference on ADHD in Baltimore, MD.  My topic, The Challenge of Life Transitions for Young Adults with ADHD: Coaching Can Help! was of interest to parents, therapists, coaches and doctors.  I wanted to share my talking points with you to pique your interest and “nudge” you to start thinking ahead in preparation for college next fall.
