Dig Coaching Practice Presents "ADHD: Transitioning from High School to College" on Attention Talk Radio with Host Jeff Copper and Rachel Masson of Landmark College
When a child leaves the nest to go off to college, it is both exciting and frightening, especially for those with ADHD. Every December with predictability, attention coach Jeff Copper receives numerous calls from parents whose high school honor student is on academic probation after one semester at college. In this episode, Jeff interviews Rachel Masson of Landmark College who helps new, unprepared ADHD students transition to college.
Landmark College is the first college designed exclusively for students diagnosed with learning disabilities or ADHD. Like many of its students, Rachel struggled with undiagnosed learning disabilities through elementary and junior high school. Upon graduation from high school, she found herself lacking the skills necessary to be successful in a traditional college setting. She was introduced to Landmark College by a family friend. While at Landmark, she developed strong writing and executive functioning skills. Following completion of her associate’s degree, she transferred to the University of Massachusetts where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree. Rachel returned to Landmark College nine years ago. Daily she works with students struggling to reach their potential and enjoys helping them reach their dreams. She often speaks on the topic of learning disabilities and the transition from high school to the college environment.
