Students with learning and attention disorders face obstacles related to managing occupational and life demands during their transitions to adult roles. Occupational therapists are ideally suited to facilitate the occupational role and performance of high achieving youth with learning and/or attention disorders (L/AD) in preparation for and during the transition to adult roles and contexts through college pathways. However, greater understanding of these young people’s broad-ranging needs and challenges across academic, career development, social, and daily life contexts is necessary. This presentation describes challenges faced by young adult college students with L/AD, a multi-faceted approach for supporting these students used at the University of Florida, and insights learned from academically successful undergraduates with L/AD that can be used to guide both research and practice.
