Leaving high school and going to college is complicated for everyone. But if you're a student on the autism spectrum who is about to enter higher education for the first time, it might be a little bit more complicated for you. Maybe you're worried about getting accommodations, getting places on time, or dealing with sensory issues in a new environment. Maybe you could use some advice on how to stay healthy at school, handle dating and relationships, or talk to your friends and classmates about your disability. Maybe you want to talk to someone who's already dealt with these issues. That's where we come in. Navigating College is an introduction to the college experience from those of us who've been there. The writers and contributors are Autistic adults, and we're giving you the advice that we wish someone could have given us when we headed off to college. We wish we could sit down and have a chat with each of you, to share our experiences and answer your questions. But since we can't teleport, and some of us have trouble meeting new people, this book is the next best thing. So as you go back to school, check out a copy of Navigating College for yourself or your loved one. We ve done this all before--let us help you out.

In this first edition of How to Succeed in University and College: A Handbook for Students, I cannot promise you that you will become an A student if you are used to getting D's or worse. What I can do, is help you learn how to learn at university and college. Many students come to university, or college, without any idea of how to learn. You might be one of them. You have gone through twelve, or more years of schooling, and you probably still have no idea how you learn. Just taking in information is not learning. There is a difference between obtaining a wide variety of knowledge, and actually learning how to use that knowledge, and until you understand that difference it will be difficult for you to learn. Let's start with obtaining information. You go to class, you take in information, and then you go away and forget it, as soon as you leave the classroom. That is not learning. I am not sure what I would call that, but it is definitely not learning.So, how do you learn? This book will provide insights into discovering what kind of a learner you are, how to read critically, how to think critically, some of the ways to improve your memory, how to take more effective notes in class, and how to think about the notes you take so that you can become more successful when writing an exam. This book is written in a very informal tone on purpose. It was written to simulate a conversation that we might have if you came to see me during my office hours. It was also written with the intention that you, the student, would interact with the book. It has questions along the way, that you should answer before continuing to read the next section, to ensure that you are understanding the main concepts.This book is designed to be of assistance to first-year university and college students, like you, as you navigate your new learning environment. It was written with you in mind. I tried to anticipate the questions that you might ask about the concepts, based on the questions that my students have asked me over the years. This book was written, in an effort, to get you to understand that it is important to interact with what you are learning in your classes. It was written with you in mind. In order to get the most benefit from using the strategies discussed in this book, you have to make the decision that you want to learn how to learn. It is up to you how much you learn at university, and in college. It is not up to your instructors, your friends, or your parents. I hope you take the time to read with the goal of learning.

What if your roommate falls asleep (or passes out) wearing contacts, and wakes up with one painfully stuck? Your friend’s terrible sore throat isn’t Strep or Mono? What else could it be? What should you do for food poisoning? When do you really need X-rays for a sprained ankle or injured toe? What helps severe test anxiety or fear of public speaking? Dr. Jill Grimes has the answer to these questions and many more. Her guidebook is designed to help you: Decide if and when to seek medical help Know what to expect when you get there Plan for the worst-case scenario if you don’t seek help Learn how you can prevent this in the future Realize what you can do right now, before you see a doctor Understand the diagnostic and treatment options Got questions about tattoos, smoking, vaping, pot, and piercings? No worries, Dr. Grimes has covered those topics, too, as well as a few things you might not know about the use and abuse of stimulant (ADD) prescription medications.

This Handbook is based on the conviction of its editors and contributing authors that understanding and acceptance of, as well as collaboration between religions has essential educational value. The development of this Handbook rests on the f- ther assumption that interreligious education has an important role in elucidating the global demand for human rights, justice, and peace. Interreligious education reveals that the creeds and holy books of the world’s religions teach about sp- itual systems that reject violence and the individualistic pursuit of economic and political gain, and call their followers to compassion for every human being. It also seeks to lead students to an awareness that the followers of religions across the world need to be, and to grow in, dialogical relationships of respect and understa- ing. An essential aim of interreligious education is the promotion of understanding and engagement between people of different religions and, therefore, it has great potential to contribute to the common good of the global community. Interreligious education has grown from the interfaith movement, whose beg- ning is usually identi?ed with the World Parliament of Religions held in Chicago in 1893. This was the ?rst time in history that leaders of the eastern and we- ern religions had come together for dialogue, and to consider working together for global unity.
