What is Transition? Why can it trip up first-year students, is it the atmosphere in which learning and studying takes place or the academic work load itself. The answer is both, college affords young adults a level of autonomy they’ve never experienced before. And if they’re attending a college away from home, they don’t have parents or guardians standing on patrol outside their doormroom to order them back inside to study for tomorrow’s midterm exam. Most students have the self-discipline to make the adjustment without too much difficulty, but others get swept up in the social whirl of college life especially those who suffer from a Learning Difference.  May it be ADHD, a student on the Autism Spectrum and or so many other challenges going on, students face a multitude of distractions that hinder the transition process.  If you and or your child are experience difficutlites around that transition from High School to College/Life contact us for a custom plan for you and your family.
