Personal Study methods & Daily Routine

Recommended Posts

What would you suggest for one whom who suffers with concentration  (dyslexia ) with their personal study & lessons for the meetings, not sure what you would call this but they hardly ever commends in the meetings because they think there answers are always wrong... No confidence at all. They would like to commend more if they were confident that there answers were correct . What methods would be suitable them ? Please help

Many with dyslexia (like myself) have to really concentrate to read, but if someone reads to us - WAY EASIER to understand and remember.


We have so many audio tools that are helpful - especially the new Bible reading and listening to the Watchtower. :thumbsup:

Plan ahead as if Armageddon will not come in your lifetime, but lead your life as if it will come tomorrow (w 2004 Dec. 1 page 29)

My husband who has developmental dyspraxia (He couldn't even read when he first came into the truth) uses the audio a lot on jw.org - and I think concentrate on learning something every meeting rather than plowing through it and not getting anything out of it - just so you can say you've 'done' all the prep. Bible reading as Jerry suggested is a great start and then find one gem you didn't know before - each week just grow on that foundation and before you know it ...


Remember too that Jehovah gave Moses the words to say ... get it into your heart and Jehovah will help you. 


Remember the story of the wicker basket ... you may not think anything is sinking in, but no matter how much water you put in a wicker basket and how much runs out - it cleanses the basket every time. Thinking of you - many of us know how hard this is.

My Service group Overseer is dyslexic.

 He is also our Watchtower conductor.  He is also  a General Contractor,  builds really nice houses.

Oh, and he restores old cars for a hobby,  in his spare time..

Oh yeah,  he was also our School overseer...


I know for him he does short study sessions,  so he can stay focused. When his attention starts to wander, he just does something else,  he doesn't fight it.

When he comments,  he has his answers written down on paper or his electronic device and he reads them, pretty much exactly as he wrote it down when studying. 

There are many ways people with dyslexia can participate,  prayer will help find a way...
