This useful guide for high school or college students diagnosed with attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities will provide the information they need to survive and thrive in the college setting. The Survival Guide is filled with practical suggestions and tips from an experienced specialist in the field and from college students who also suffer from these difficulties. This book will help ADD and LD students to choose the right college, assess the services a college offers, arrange for extended-time exams, schedule classes advantageously, select an appropriate major, work with a career counselor, and initiate and maintain helpful relationships with professors. Many valuable suggestions on how students can help themselves are also included in the Survival Guide. These include ways to study, how to manage time, overcoming procrastination, organizing oneself, resisting temptation, minimizing distractions, reducing frustrations, building a support network, learning self-advocacy, scheduling extracurricular activities, and choosing part-time employment.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Carlisle Kraft Webber
Choosing the right college is always a challenge for high school students, but the learning needs of an Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Learning Disabled (LD) student can make the choice even more difficult. Which colleges will offer the assistance that an ADHD/LD student needs? What are the important questions to ask during a college tour or interview? This short textbook-style guide is a useful resource both to those students with learning disabilities and those who want to hone their study skills to lead a more successful college career. Students with learning disabilities are encouraged to take charge of their own educations rather than to have their parents or peers do the work for them outside of guidance and support. The adult language, free of slang and netspeak, will appeal to smart, ambitious teens. Interactive lists include a college preference questionnaire (big school versus small school, urban environment versus rural, etc.) and questions to take to a college's student support office. At no time does this book list any particular colleges that are "good" for ADHD/LD students; instead it supplies the tools to help ADHD/LD teens choose the college at which they can succeed. Recognizing a student's desire to have a life in college as well as learn, the author offers tips on time management, employment, and how to avoid an environment that an ADHD/LD student might find too distracting. This short volume is a valuable addition to college and career collections.
