- Brief summaryCollege students are in their late adolescent years, in which self-regulation is not fully developed yet. An estimated 2 to 8% of college students have ADHD. Due to the loss of structure of home, high school and impaired self-regulation, these students often have difficulty with planning and organizing their college work and life. Their academic functioning is disturbed and they are at risk for college dropout and co-morbidity. This study assesses the effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral treatment focused on enhancing the planning and organization skills of students with ADHD using a randomized controlled design. Students with ADHD, aged 17-25 years old, are randomized to either a 6 week treatment focussing on enhancing planning skills and restructering dysfunctional cognitions or a waitlist control condition. Pre, post, and follow-up tests are conducted. Outcomes are on ADHD behavior, academic functioning, planning skills and comorbidity.
