COVID-19: Is it Time for an ADHD Gap Year to Work on Life and Work Readiness?

"The COVID-19 pandemic has really put a wrench in everyone's plans. For many with ADHD, it's disruptive to learning, so much so that one could almost classify it as a lost year. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper (www.digcoaching.com) interviews Carolyn Jeppsen of BroadFutures. They talk about the dynamic that's going on now and the advantages of taking a gap year or semester and spending it working on life and work readiness so that, when things resume, you are in a good position to take advantage of them. If you're a student or the parent of a student who is struggling with the notion of online learning, this is a show you won't want to miss."
