Classroom Challenges

Most adults with ADHD are prevented or discouraged from meeting their goals by one or more difficulties in managing themselves and their performance:

  • Paying attention during instructions
  • Comprehending and remembering what they read
  • Planning and organizing
  • Getting started
  • Staying on task
  • Managing time
  • Finding things
  • Problem solving and decision-making (adapting, getting “unstuck”)
