Children with ADHD have difficulty focusing on their studies in school. In general, children with ADHD are very bright individuals. They just need a little nudge in the right direction. A wonderful way to help them boost their brainpower and improve study habits is to provide them with study cards.
Study cards are flashcards, notes, and other simple learning aids that can be beneficial for the child. These cards will help remind the child of the subjects that they have learned. They will also help teach them new things. They can be bought at most stores or can be made at home and in school.
Making cards can help enforce what the child has learned and make things fun also. All that is needed is some index cards or durable construction paper, lessons, and writing utensils to create. A child and an adult can create these cards together, discussing the subjects as they go.
Cards can be personalized to suit the child’s needs. They can range in grade level and experience. The child can color them or write abbreviations, poems, and songs that will increase their studying skills and ability to remember.
Learning cards can hold anything that brain does. They can even be made as study aids for tests with questions on one side and answers on the others or tips to help the child prepare for upcoming tests. Any subject that is important in the child’s learning process can be used as the basis for study cards.
