Students can meet with staff in the Macalester Academic Excellence Center to gain time management, writing, and study skills support in addition to some subject tutoring. For more in-depth coaching some students have turned to working with an off-campus ADD/ADHD coach to supplement their skill development.
The purpose of working with an ADD/ADHD coach is to provide support, structure and accountability to a student who struggles with ADD/ADHD. The coach and the student collaboratively explore strengths, talents, and tools to increase self-awareness and motivation. Together they design strategies and monitor a variety of areas to include scheduling, goal setting, confidence building, organizing, focusing, prioritizing, and persisting at tasks.
The following is a listing of off-campus service providers of ADD/ADHD coaching. It has been compiled solely as a convenience to students and family members and does not imply endorsement by the College, nor is it an exhaustive list of available resources. Contact information is reviewed annually but may be subject to change throughout the year.
