The transition from high school to college is not easy for students, but it can be even more challenging and overwhelming for students with ADHD and/or learning disabilities. These students have been supported by their families and the predictability of the high school environment. In college, a new world of freedom and choices excite and frighten them. Which direction should I go? Where can I get help? What do I need to know? This session presents a pilot program implemented at Auburn University with the goal of helping students with ADHD and/or learning disabilities find success in college. The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) is a partnership between the Office of Accessibility and the Office Academic Support. The structure of the AEP, its challenges and accomplishments will be discussed. This session is especially helpful for faculty working with freshman students.
