How to study

Hey. Does anyone have any advice on how to study and listen in school? I cant listen in school at all. I just start thinking about something else.

It can be quite personal and what suits one person may not work so well or at all for others. What did your Counsellor say?

It is quite common for some to also struggle with attention. Effective listening will also be v difficult if you're in a state of worry/distress or panic. Addressing these difficulties should make it easier to be in state conducive to learning.

It's worth looking at/thinking about what works and doesn't work for you.

You may have ADHD. It is commonly comorbid with Dyspraxia. It is worth speaking to a psychiatrist about that. :)
