Parenting a Floudering ADD College Student

I can't find a better thread for this, but I'd love to hear stories of what parents have tried for their young adults with ADD. Ours thinks he's too old to be micromanaged, but he is consistently flunking. Had a scholarship to a university, but flunked in first year. Moved home to attend community college . . . and is succeeding in some classes and flunking others (the ones that let him turn in work late). He can get accommodations but won't. Won't read books on ADHD. Won't see a counselor. Thinks he knows best. I need PARENTING advice. What do we do now? (I agree with whatever book I read that said that ADD kids have the maturity level of someone 1/3 younger. But he's 21 and resists being treated like a 15-year-old, despite acting like one.) HELP!
