Study Skills and Assistive Technology
All students need good study habits to be successful in school. Students need good organization, time management, and practical strategies for gathering and retaining information. Good routines can be developed and established, which can make school easier. These skills are especially crucial for students with reading and writing challenges, such as dyslexia and dysgraphia, ADHD, or executive functioning deficits.
Assistive technology can help students with learning difficulties keep up with their learning demands. There are many useful tools to help students access grade-level materials and show their true understanding, while they work to get on track. Coupled with effective structured literacy intervention, learning to use these tools can be life-changing!
