Nutrition is a factor that is often overlooked with regard to learning disabilities and the effect it has on them.
Note: According to an article in the Boulder Daily Camera, there are numerous national studies that show that children who eat a lunch packed with sugar and caffeine have a hard time concentrating, and thus learning. In addition, studies revealed that when students had a healthy meal, their performance went up and ADD symptoms decreased.
And do not forget the importance of staying hydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water at all times.
