Abstract
  • This research investigates the role of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the life experiences of University Student-Athletes. This qualitative study employs a naturalistic and grounded paradigm in an effort to capture the essence of these experiences. Participants are four student-athletes from Oregon State University who play intercollegiate athletics in the Pac-10 conference. The participants share their life experiences during two in-depth phenomenological interviews. Interviews are tape recorded and transcribed. Interview questions follow a semi-structure outline developed by the researcher. Initial interviews yield emerging concepts and themes that guide subsequent interviews. Data is grouped according to extracted themes. Findings reveal the following themes: 1)Discovery of ADHD; 2)Understanding ADHD; and 3)Assimilating ADHD. This study has implications for adults with ADHD, specifically university student-athletes, and further implications for collegiate coaches and counselor educators.
