Hi,
My Grandson who is inthe 11th grade has a lot trouble of paying attention for zoom lessons. He is easily distracted, wants to look out the window. Also when typing the answers to questions he takes quite awhile to type in the answers. What can I do?

Speech to Text?

If typing is the issue, he could try using speech to text. I just found out that windows key plus H will let you use speech to text in almost any field. Hope that may help.

Also rearrange the room so there are fewer distractions. Face away from the windows? Shades? Would a fidget help him to focus? Standing desk?

Hopefully his school has a person who can teach him to use some assistive technology. Read and Write app for Chrome is wonderful with speech to text and more. Can he reach out to his homeroom teacher to ask for help with this?
