Who We Are

About Us

Our workshop staff members are drawn from fields of psychology, counseling, education, business, communications, and information technology representing decades of training and experience.

More importantly, all of our staff bring an understanding and empathy based upon personal experiences with ADHD. Each of us has taught or counseled young people with ADHD, raised ADHD children, struggled successfully with ADHD in school and work ourselves, or combinations of all of these.

“I am approaching next year with a whole different outlook, finally! After years of dread about school, I learned so many new ways to handle things. The training really helped me make sense of college.”

“This training has led me to be more focused on my goals. I have now sent my letter of intent to transfer from community college to a university!”

What We Do:

We help ADHD students succeed in college and career.
Our Method
For over thirty years we have studied the challenges that ADHD can create for young adults and developed a proven set of Principles for solving them. The ADHD College Success Guidance Program provides the specialized training, mental health and career counseling, and academic coaching throughout students' college experience to assure their greatest success.
Our Workshops

Currently we are conducting online workshops only due to the COVID-19 health guidelines mandated by local, state, and government officials.

We will resume our 3-day residential workshops when it is safe to bring small groups together.

Our Staff
Composed of couselors, teachers, former students and graduates of the Program, our staff is intimately familiar with the challenges of ADHD in both the academic and career environments. Dr. Jon Thomas, designer of the Program, spearheads the workshops and has personally trained the facilitators and Academic Coaches.
