Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

College students with LD or ADHD face challenges related to managing evolving everyday life demands and LD- or ADHD-related symptomatology. This analysis delineates topics discussed in psychoeducational groups and the ways in which participants personalized the knowledge gained. Findings elucidate ways that personalized knowledge potentiates occupational performance for young people with LD or ADHD transitioning to adult roles.
