    Navigating College with ADHD, Preparing for Success

    For students with ADHD, the transition from high school to college is a time for them to show their independence and not rely much on their parents' support. But college is dramatically different than high school. With increased academic demands, differences in teaching methods and grading procedures, and fewer available accommodations and supports, many students with ADHD soon find themselves falling behind. Judy Bass, a Certified Educational Planner, talks about the learning supports and interventions that help students who learn differently to succeed in college.

    ADHD and the “Just Right” Relationship ( ADHD 365)

    The symptoms of ADHD can have profound effects on intimate relationships such as dating and marriage. But even though ADHD is present, it doesn’t mean that the person with ADHD is the sole cause of problems. Transforming your relationship starts with both partners understanding the role that ADHD plays and nondefensive listening. Melissa Orlov, the founder of ADHD Marriage, provides tools to help couples create a responsive relationship that feels “just right” for both individuals.


     


    Melissa Orlov is the founder of ADHDmarriage.com and the author of two award-winning books on the impact of ADHD in relationships: The ADHD Effect on Marriage (2010) and The Couple's Guide to Thriving with ADHD (2014). She is considered one of the foremost authorities on the topic of how ADHD impacts adult relationships. As a marriage consultant, she helps ADHD-affected couples from around the world rebalance their relationships and learn to thrive through her seminars, consulting practice, and books. She also teaches marriage counselors and other professionals about effective marriage therapy for couples affected by ADHD. Orlov blogs for psychologytoday.com and adhdmarriage.com, where she also hosts a large community of adults learning about ADHD in relationships. She has been interviewed by many publications and media outlets, including the New York Times, CNN, Today, and US News and World Report.

Unbelievably helpful

I have been searching for a long time for information about ADHD and this podcast has the most consistently helpful content I have encountered. The speakers are clearly experts in their fields and the Q&A after the talks hit the topics I would have asked. I am very grateful for this resource!

Host is annoying

I really wanted this to be a helpful resource for me. Unfortunately I can’t get past the Host. He speaks with a really unusual cadence that’s really annoying. He also sounded like he was speaking to children instead of adults while conveying information. I can’t do it.

Advice? Really?

I was most excited both personally and professionally to offer this resource to people with Adult ADHD. Unfortunately I just listened to an episode promoting IRT and have to remain skeptical at best. This is not an evidence based practice and seems to have been formed around psychodynamic like concepts versus science. We can assert that though some have benefited from approaches like these, they way heavily into assumptions about the nature of humanity, couples, and tendency of behaviors in adults. Whenever your integrations focus on what people “tend to be” there is a big chance that you’re stepping into guess work instead of actual psychotherapy. I do hoe many benefit from education and treatment for ADHD but hope later episodes on here will promote more supported forms of therapy.
