Ask the Expert Highlight:
Your Student Was Admitted. Now What?

Featuring Michele Oelking, MSW, ACC, PCC


Your young adult is making the transition to college this month and you likely have questions about the resources available on campus. Watch this special Ask the Expert Highlight to learn about support options available for college students with ADHD. We discuss common challenges ADHD students face in their first year at college and what to look for in a support system. 

This highlight is great for parents of students that are transitioning from high school to college or students already in college, as well as current and soon-to-be college students with ADHD looking for resources to succeed on campus. Parents will gain valuable tips to best support their college student and college students will learn about resources available and how to access them. 

Ms. Oelking serves as director of the Academic Success Center at Tulane University. In 2012, she started Tulane’s Success Coaching program to support students in the areas of academic, personal, and professional achievement.
