ADHD in Students

Starting University is an exciting but challenging time for most people. For those with ADHD however, the increase in academic demands, the need for self directed learning, and domestic independence can become overwhelming.

Those with undiagnosed ADHD often struggle to recognise their difficulties as a disorder, and as a result they can face significant emotional challenges.

Students may not realise that the struggles they face in academic life such as procrastinating during study time or being unable to concentrate during a class or lecture, may actually be a symptom of their undiagnosed ADHD.

Many universities and other educational institutions require documentation from the Consultant Psychiatrist or a specific form to be completed, in order to apply for adaptations etc. If that means a specific letter or form needs to be submitted, then that incurs an admin fee of £150.
