Have you ever wondered ... If people can't pay attention to lectures and texts, why'd they come to college? Aren't attention deficits obvious before college? Don't kids outgrow ADHD? Isn't ADHD over-diagnosed and over-medicated?
Panel members are professionals working with CSU students who struggle with attention and focus. Each one will briefly share perspectives that may enlighten you and/or challenge misconceptions about attention difficulties. Then, they'll respond to your questions and concerns about ADHD, especially among college students.
Goals and Target Audience:
Session goals include providing perspectives about the impact ADHD can have on college students, addressing misconceptions and concerns, and informing participants about the support services available to CSU students who struggle with attention and/or focus.
Targeted audience includes teachers, advisors, tutors, student services staff, friends, and family of adults who struggle with attention and focus.
