ADHD Support Group

Program overview

As someone with ADHD, there are many skills and strengths you possess that will allow you to flourish in the ‘real world’ but there are others that can present significant challenges while you are a student. This group will meet weekly for two hours during the semester and together we will identify the things that get in the way of your studies and work on developing skills to overcome those barriers.

This group will also be a great way for you to connect with other students who have similar life experiences. It is envisaged that this group will give you the opportunity to help each other by sharing some of the strategies you have developed over time.

As a sampler, here’s an audio recording of a workshop on improving your planning and organisation for those with ADHD.
