Girls and boys may show symptoms of ADHD differently which may contribute to why girls are more likely to be underdiagnosed with ADHD and consequently less likely to receive appropriate treatment. Girls may display more inattentive symptoms (difficulty focusing, "spacing out," difficulties with organization, etc.) which does not necessarily draw attention or cause behavioral difficulties. However, unidentified and untreated difficulties can impact ability to do well in school, at home, socially, etc.
For many young adults, the transition to college life and balancing collegiate, family, and social life can be an adjustment. Our #CollegeConnections is a behavioral services program designed to assist high-functioning college students with a combination of cognitive, emotional, and learning challenges in developing the skills needed for successful participation in school, career, and community.
Had to share this awesome post from @theaccommodationstation Executive function skills are necessary both for successful performance of everyday functions and establishing, pursuing and reaching long-term goals. Even mild deficits can significantly impact everyday daily life.
We are in the process of updating our phone systems and are working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. Our phone number is not changing. However, during the transition, calls may go to voicemail. We will be checking our messages frequently so please leave a message and we will call you back. If you are trying to reach a staff/clinician, you may also leave a voicemail in the general mailbox and we will get the message to them. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience!
