I have had ADD since grade school. It is always hard for me to focus and unless I write it down and block out the noise I can not finish a project. I will even admit sometimes at work it effects me. Lately I found that listening to music with headphones while doing a project allows me to block out all noise and avoid jumping to something else.
My son is also ADD and I am wondering if this would help him. I wanted to try it with his home work but not sure how to tell if it works like it does with me. I don't want him sitting there jamming away and not doing homework. He has a crammer that he got for Christmas and it is suppose to be an MP3 player and a way to study. The slogan is cram while you jam.
Does anyone know if listening to music helps ADD or is it a fluke that it works for me?

Worth a try. My 11 DD has ADHD and an auditory processing disorder, she uses head phone and her teacher has a microphone at school to help block out back round noise during lessons. I'm willing to try, I think it's a good idea
