The Attention Deficit: Can Prospective and Current Students Comprehend ADHD Documentation Guidelines?
Taylor, Zachary W.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v55 n3 p285-294 2018
Students with ADHD are less likely to graduate from college than their peers; this study examines the currency and readability of ADHD documentation guidelines of 335 randomly selected, four-year, public and non-profit private institutions in the United States. Findings reveal that ADHD documentation is current, yet composed at nearly a 17th-grade level, rendering it difficult for students to apply for the learning accommodations they need. Implications for practitioners and future research are addressed.
