Overview: "As he sits in class at Eastern Michigan University, a flood of images streams from Tony Saylor's vibrant, creative mind down through his pen and onto paper. Often, his doodling features the 9-year-old character Viper Girl who battles monsters with her pet fox Logan. Saylor, 22, has even self-published three books of their adventures. Saylor's professors didn't exactly welcome his constant drawing, but once he explained it was the only way he could hope to process their lectures -and even to stay awake -most let him continue. For college students with autism and other learning disabilities, this is the kind of balancing act that takes place every day -accommodating a disability while also pushing beyond it toward normalcy and a degree, which is increasingly essential for finding a meaningful career." - The Huffington Post (2013)

"For students with autism, the transition from high school to college is fraught with unique difficulties. In addition to the challenges that every college student faces, young adults with autism spectrum disorders must develop new living skills, navigate a brand-new social landscape, and work hard to ensure that their own learning styles are accommodated, not lost in the shuffle." - U.S. News & World Report (2014)

"In many ways, Mark Heim is a typical senior at Colorado State University. He has the kind of smart humor you'd expect from someone who excels in computer science, engineering and math his T-shirt reads, 'Department of Redundancy Department.' But as a student living with Asperger's syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, the everyday social interactions of college life can be awkward. Heim is part of a new influx of kids with autism who are heading off to college, creating a new demand for college services to help students with autism fit in, graduate and find jobs." - NPR (2011) As the importance of acquiring a college education continues to increase, the number of college students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is growing exponentially. The presence of these students adds diversity enhances the quality of the collegiate experience for everyone, but responding effectively to the needs of this population on our can create challenges. From the classroom to the residence hall to the dining facilities to the athletic venues, making sure these students are accepted and 'fit in' with the overall campus community should be of paramount important to everyone in higher education.

Establishing the Mentor-Mentee Relationship is Crucial for Organizations

One of the important relationships that define an organization’s destiny is the one between the mentor and mentee. When handled properly, it is a highly effective means of delegating, increasing productivity, raising the organization’s profile, and for accomplishing a number of business goals.The way an organization charts its mentor-mentee relationship is largely subjective and individual. It is difficult to lay down strict rules for this kind of relationship. Yet, if there is no clarity on…See More
