We forget things in my house more than the average family…Maybe that’s because there is three of us with ADHD with major memory and organizational issues between all of us. I am starting to think we are even rubbing off on my husband who doesn’t have ADHD because he is starting to forget even more things than I do! So when Boogie Board sent my kid’s their Jot 4.5 eWriter we were excited, to say the least, we actually had to go out and buy a second one for my daughter because everyone was fighting over who was going to use it! The Jot 4.5 eliminates the need for paper, scratch pads, and sticky notes – simply write and erase. The LCD writing screen is engineered to feel just like writing with a pen on paper. The image stays as long as you need it to and can be erased with the touch of a button.
My daughter who you will see on the video review below used it the most during homework, we find she is always wasting paper when she has to do her math problems out. She will put one problem on a piece of paper and only really use 1/3 of the paper up, it drives me insane! My theory on her wasting tons of paper while doing homework is that she can only focus on the math problem she is doing at that moment, so to have multiple math problems on a sheet of paper is distracting. That is why the Jot 4.5 and the multiple other eWriters by Boogie Board are so great. It allows you to jot down what you need to at that moment and then when your done or need to start something new you can just erase it. We also used it in my house in the car, as a fidget to keep kids busy and we even played games with it to keep them busy. We used it for my son to practice his sight words, writing and spelling the words out while I would drive his sister to dance.
My husband and I even started using the Jot 4.5 to write down notes to each other and we are probably going to get a third board just for that one purpose. It is very light weight and could attach to any surface with double sided tape, we plan to put one on our fridge so we can write important notes back and forth. Unlike a dry erase board where you would need to constantly use an eraser and make a mess with the ink, this you can just push a button and erase…it’s MESS FREE WRITING!
I highly recommend this product for kids and adults with ADHD and any memory issues. I think it can even be beneficial in the classroom for kids to make learning fun! It’s hand held and easy, light-weight and durable at the same time. They come in every color and pattern you could think of to express yourself as well. Check them out online to get one today, as well as the many other Boogie Board eWriters! Make sure to like them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram
