Abstract

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Disability Services Office felt the need for a website which could make the transition from high school to college easier for incoming students with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). After researching pertinent information on the disorder, the project team designed a website which was aimed toward providing specific information for coping with WPI's fast-paced environment. The website, located as a link off the disability services home page (http://www.wpi.edu/Admin/Disabilities), included topics such as coping strategies, personal stories from current WPI students with AD/HD and general information on the disorder. The project team created an online survey and found that most people found our website useful, informative and, most importantly, aimed toward assisting high schools students entering college.
