OLIVEIRA, Clarissa Tochetto de  e  DIAS, Ana Cristina Garcia. Coping strategies for college adjustment of students with ADHD symptoms. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.2, pp. 269-280. ISSN 1516-3687.

This study aims at identifying the main difficulties freshmen with ADHD symptoms face in college and verifying which coping styles are associated with higher scores of college adjustment. In this research, 28 college students participated. Data were gathered in classrooms with self-reported questionnaires. Difficulties mentioned by participants were submitted to content analysis. We also estimated linear correlations (Pearson) between variables. Results suggest that the most frequent difficulties are the need for greater autonomy, concentration and reasoning, relationship with classmates and the lack of information provided by majors. We also verify that certain coping strategies are associated with better college adjustment. We conclude that knowing difficulties students with ADHD symptoms face and what strategies might contribute to their college adjustment may guide interventions for this population.
