Effective study strategies

Strategies for managing distractions

It can be hard to concentrate on study when there are too many distractions.

  • Talk with your teen about what they are most likely to be distracted by and how they can limit these.
  • Set up an area that is quiet and well lit with good air flow.
  • Consider making their study area a phone free zone or turning off social media notifications during set study periods.

It is important that your teen has regular breaks while studying and sets aside time for fun. If they know that they will get time to connect with others and do the things they enjoy they will find it easier to focus during set study periods.
