      My daughter college in Columbus, OH 43215, she is bright, charming, and talented. But, she was diagnosed with ADHD at age seven. My challenge is how do I assist her without making her dependent. She has difficulty maintaining her GPA in college. She made it to senior status and has several classes and an internship to takes before graduation but Raja appears to be losing interest, or focus.. We’ve been through it all, meeting with the dean, financial aid being taken away, dismissal, probation, procrastination, depression, anxiety, medication, therapy, counseling, defiant and angry behavior towards me, distractibility, not listening to my suggestions….honestly I am torn. I don’t know what to do anymore. The vice president of the college requested she skip spring semester and try again summer semester. I don’t want to give up on her but, it’s extremely difficult to watch her struggle, and miss financial and learning opportunities that could benefit her future. What is a single parent of an ADHD adult to do?
