Does your college offer any student health services? If so, that might be the fast track to a referral, and treatment or accommodations if they are appropriate. Many post-secondary institutions these days are making great efforts to help students with learning disabilities succeed. You could have ADD, but you might also have other learning disabilities. Tell them what your previous teachers have said about suspecting that you have ADD – it will be a big help in getting you an appointment and possibly a diagnosis. You are now old enough that you don’t need your mother’s permission to seek help. Remember: She loves you, but nobody knows everything and everybody is wrong sometimes. It would be a tragedy if her ignorance destroyed your future. Deep down, that’s the last thing she would want. Good luck.
