Author(s): Dr. Vinod Kumar Kain
Abstract: Cultivation of proper study habits is the sole aim of education. In the field of education, habits of thinking regularly, proper reasoning, concentration on study and punctuality help the students in their proper academic achievement. Academic performance of any student is considered on the based their marks in the previous class which are attained on the basis of their academic skills. These academic skills can be achieved through the various habits including the study habits. The study habit may be differ from student to student those differences can have a significant bearing on the totality of learning. Sighted students may get attracted to different visual stimuli surrounding their home, school, library and other places where they wish to study, while a visually impaired child has less stimulation as compared to a sighted child due to lack of vision. Some of the experts in the field of visual impairment may assume that visually impaired students may concentrate better on their studies as the outer stimulation may not distract their concentration during study. On the other side some experts have different view in respect of their concentration. Due to lack of one sense (vision) they try to utilize their remaining senses more and more; therefore they may be deeply involved in their studies.
