Format: Paperback
This fully updated second edition of Survival Guide For College Students With ADHD Or LD is an outstanding compendium of explanation and advice gathered from the expertise, experience, and original studies of Kathleen G. Nadeau (Clinical Psychologist and nationally known specialist on attentional learning disabilities). Introducing readers to an intelligent and informed presentation of the difficulties involved in the process of post-secondary schooling for troubled students, Survival Guide For College Students With ADHD Or LD nicely educates its readers on just how to find the most suitable college, how to build a productive and positive relationship with professors, mastering the total utilization of the support and services and accommodations provided, how to select and schedule the desired courses, choosing a major and prospective career, and how to manage time properly in order to get everything done and still have personal time. Survival Guide For College Students With ADHD Or LD is very strongly recommended as essential for all aspiring college students with ADHD or any other form of learning disabilities for its precision and detail concerning the college classroom experience and how to make the most of it.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book and highly recommended especially if you are newly diagnosed or new to post-secondary education. The book is actually more of a quick reference guide, the type you can carry around with you, and use on an as need basis. I myself keep it handy, and whenever a question, problem, or concern comes up related to ADHD and school I just pick it up and flip to the relevant section. This book is not intended to be an exhaustive analysis of the ADHD post-secondary situation, but more of a pithy and portable help manual. I definitely recommend purchasing this book, even if it means giving up and evening of beer and pizza in order to afford the book, as it's well worth it.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Zaius on February 18, 2004
Format: Paperback
I bought this book based on Gerard's review. I found it to be decent and fairly useful. Most of the stuff is pretty straight forward and already common knowledge. Some useful hints that I hadn't thought about on how to organize yourself and seek help. All the pictures in the book seem to be out of the 70s or 80s, which I found kind of strange...not that it matters. The book is really short and you probably only need to look at it once. It's a worthwhile investment.

Not bad but really more geared for high school students planning on and in the progress of applying and planning for college. Some sparse info for he college student.

The Survival Guide for College Students with ADHD or LD is a "must own" resource for parents of students with ADHD and LD as well as for the students. It offers practical suggestions for selecting a college, choosing a major, and qualifying for and requesting accomodations. The chapter on taking quizzes and exams describes my son who has poor test performance due to everything listed: test anxiety, sleep deprivation, and memory-retrieval problems. But now he has some strategies to improve his test performance in college. I highly recommend this valuable resource to anyone with ADHD or LD or their parents!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of the issues I have with self-help books is relevancy. As a recently assessed and diagnosed individual with ADD-AD/HD and other learning disabilities who has decided to return to college, I find I have many unanswered questions.

As an older and non-traditional student, the only laws that apply to me are those that apply to all adults with disabilities under the ADA.

That means that almost all services that are available to students and recent graduates from high school are NOT available to me or us, if you prefer.

So, finding good information on what services are normally available to grades K-12, and determining which types of services I need and would benefit is a major research project.

One of the aspects for myself is finding colleges and universities that have services available to meet my needs to understand what all this means and how it has affected me throughout my life to date, and especially as it pertains to my academic achievements and goals.

To ascertain which colleges and universities offer support services directly or at least, indirectly (outside consultants), it is necessary to interview the colleges and universities of interest to determine which are most likely to have the best fit for an individual. This requires a set of questions that can either be submitted by mail or email to the "Students with Disability Services" office, or asked in person when touring a campus.

Out of over 4,000 colleges and universities in the United States, only 100+ offer specialized supplemental programs tailored specifically for students having ADD-AD/HD or LD's.
