Effective study skills are crucial for learning and getting good grades. Many kids who struggle with school are using strategies that often do not help them learn. Methods such as underlining, re-reading, and cramming, as well as various other academic skills, produce very modest results in the classroom. There is substantial research on effective study skills that help both struggling learners and students who are at the top of their class.  The more you know as a parent, the better you can inform your child about effective study habits. 

Our team of neuropsychologists, school psychologists, and psychology students at South County Child and Family Consultants are committed to searching the Internet and beyond to find reputable, informative, and practical tools to help parents, children, and teens improve their study habits. We look for the best information online to help kids diagnosed with ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Executive Functioning Difficulties, struggles with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills, Autism, Depression, and Anxiety and provide you with information about how neuropsychological evaluations help in targeting concerns regarding study habits. Come back regularly, as the links are updated frequently.
