The need for conducting such research has become more evident recently, as increasing numbers of students with ADHD have been enrolling in college. To address this situation, the goals of this proposed study are: (a) to investigate the developmental trajectory of functional impairments associated with ADHD in the college student population, and (b) to identify variables that may predict differential outcomes in this group.
