Note: Jane, one of my students many years ago, shared this resource and several others. She has overcome much and used her ADHD "benefits" to be entrepreneurial. She has been and is successful in multiple arenas including her professions, motherhood, marriage, and advocacy for others with ADHD/ADD. 

* Several months ago, I listened to one informative webinar, which was a positive use of my time.

After posting this resource, we read many of the resources for students of all ages. Many aps, tools and strategies exist to help ADHD/ADD people overcome or compensate for their symptoms. Below are some sample screen shots from articles on college-aged.
