  • Struggling College Student Granted ADHD Accommodations for College and GMAT

    “You Saved My Life”

    Maria had a history of ADHD, and nonetheless gained admission to a prestigious university. She did fine academically for her first two years while taking science courses. Then she changed her major to English Literature, and began falling further and further behind, unable to keep up with the reading and writing assignments. She developed panic attacks and depression, and in desperation sought our help. We performed psychological testing which determined that she had ADHD, predominantly inattentive type; and learning disabilities, including slow processing speed and auditory processing deficits. With our help she was able to obtain accommodations at her college including 150% time on examinations, taking exams in a room free from distractions, and the ability to use a computer during essay exams. In addition, she was granted extra time to complete long term papers. Through these accommodations and her persistent hard work, she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Following graduation, Maria came in for a visit and said, “You saved my life!” We high-fived, and I confess my eyes were somewhat misty. Two years later she came back in requesting our help in being granted accommodations for her upcoming GMAT exams. We were successful, she was granted 150% time to complete the exam, and she performed well. Recently she began attending a prominent MBA program.
