The Journey from High School to Young Adulthood with ADHD

April 13, 2021

Are you concerned about how your child with ADHD will manage adulthood independently?

Launching successfully is difficult for many young adults with ADHD. Unfortunately, our late bloomers often don’t have the necessary brain maturity and skills required to juggle the demands of transitioning to college or a full-time job at age 18. In this podcast, Dendy and Hughes share their personal experiences and strategies. They also provide information on career opportunities and ways to help your child with ADHD succeed.
