- Set up a space for your child to use that considers their unique learning styles:
- Desk or table, with a comfortable chair set at an appropriate height.
- Space for writing in notebooks and space for an electronic device such as a laptop or tablet.
- Access to internet services.
- Access to power.
- Good lighting and in a quiet location, away from distractions.
