Tips for setting up a learning space

  • Select a space with minimal distractions.

  • Give your child ownership by allowing them choice in some of the decisions, such as in selecting school supplies and the type of container used to store them.

  • Store school supplies in a consistent and convenient location where they are easily accessible.
  • Allow flexibility with seating such as a chair, exercise (bouncy) ball, cushion, the floor or even standing.
  • Provide headphones to help block out background noise.
  • Personalize the space by adding a meaningful touch such as a decoration, picture, fidget, or daily schedule.
