Note-Taking Tips for Students





As a student, I found an easy way to keep my notes separated for each different class. At the beginning of school, I bought about ten dollars worth of the spiral one subject notebooks. I found them at the local Wal-mart and they were ten cents a piece. I used one spiral notebook per class and I placed all notes in them. When the class was over, I just placed the used notebook in the file cabinet with the folder that held all handouts.

Also, I always wrote the name of the class on the notebook and the folder. That way, I never got my class notes mixed up or lost the important information I needed. By staying organized, you will find your material that is needed for homework. There are some other ways to stay organized, like a three ring notebook that holds all your class notes. However, make sure that you use several paper dividers and mark them properly.

Understanding Asperger Syndrome

My Son DJ has Asperger Syndrome

Children with Asperger's Syndrome have "neurological problems", which causes them to "displayautistic behaviors". This neurological disorder is named after" Hans Asperger, a Viennese physician", who discovered the disorder in "1944". But, it wasn't until "1994", when the disorder was added to the "DSM IV", which list all mental disorders. Many parents and physicians have noticed the symptoms more in the recent years. Usually, the children will have a "normal intelligence level or language development".

However, they can exhibit symptoms that are mild to severe, which can cause stress on the entire family. Children with Asperger's Syndrome may have trouble in social situations and will not react well to change. Many "characteristics" begin showing up, usually before the age of five or younger. Some children may prefer "doing the same things": like eating the "same food", play with same toys, or watch the same movie over and over.
