Every classroom is full of children learning at different levels. Every student who sits in school chairs listening to their teacher absorbs
Audiobooks can be a great way to learn
information in a different way and at a different place. Luckily for the kids who need a little extra help there are many devices to make learning easier.
One of the most important skills, if not the most important, is reading. Fluency in reading is the most crucial element for students to absorb the growing amount of information teachers impart to them. If reading is a difficulty for students they can fall behind and have a difficult time catching up. Luckily there are tools available to assist children to improve their reading ability.
Audiobooks are a great way to garner information, and a great place to find them is through Recordings for the Blind & Dyslexic, which has a library of over 100,000 recorded textbooks at every grade level. The books are read out loud by experts in each subject so charts, graphs, and illustrations are well described.
A PDA could be just the thing your ADD child needs
There are many gadgets and tools to help children with Attention Deficit Disorder to do better in school. These tools can help children when they are sitting at their school desks trying to get their homework done or when they are studying for tests.
Don’t become overwhelmed by the large number of products available to help children compensate for their learning struggle.
First concentrate on just two or three of your child’s most critical problems in school. Look for easy-to-use products that deal with these particular needs. Try and purchase these tech-tools long before school begins so that our child will have time to understand how the tool works and how it will help him. If he/she seems to not be getting the knack of it then think about getting a tutor who can help with the gadget.
Help your child stay organized and get places on time with a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant). This hand-held mini-computer can help children from about 12 years old and up stay organized. PDAs include planners for keeping track of assignments and activities, a to-do list, a note pad, and alarms to help your child get there on time. A visual timer is a great way to help kids with ADD keep track of time with external cues. For $25 you can get the “Time Timer” which uses a diminishing red disc to graphically display the passing of time.
