Hi, I'm 59 and started graduate school last year. Thanks for reading/listening! I have 2 areas where I could use some feedback.
1. I was having incredible (painfully frustrating) difficulty writing papers. I hadn't paid a lot of attention to my ADHD until I learned that adults symptoms can become more pronounced. I underwent testing for ADHD to submit documentation to the school and basically they don't offer any accomodations. I could get extra time for exams but I don't have any exams. The final assignment for every class is a 10 page research paper.
The recommendations on my report for accommodations included 150% time given for exams or other assignments. I'm deciding if I should push the school for the extra time to complete my final research papers. It's a private school.
I would appreciate any feedback.
2. I've always been an A-B student. I have my bachelors in nursing and I'm a sophomore as a fine arts major. I've been in college on and off over the years. The papers I've written in the past were medical. Much more 'black and white' type of writing. I can talk about these subjects but putting in writing is extremely difficult. I can use the writing tutors at the college and they have been helpful. But at age 59 with ADHD I have a completely different perspective. Thank you for any suggestions you may have!! And again, thanks for listening. It's nice to know there are others out there who "get it!"
