Having a seperate workplace for each child in your home helps to minimize distractions and provide customized space suitable for that child’s specific needs.
Sticking to a specific schedule for virutal learning, “homework,” reading time, and more helps to maintain normalcy and will get your family into a natural groove.
Children with IEPs may have a paraprofessional aid, counselor, speech therapist, or more at their school that they would typically see on a regular basis. If they have not yet reached out to you, it is a good idea to reach out to them about how you can both best support the needs of your child during virutal learning.
Teenagers, middleschoolers, and young child have different learning needs and requirements based upon their academic expectations during virutal learning. Having a schedule or chart for each child’s learning requirements (such as Zoom classroom meetings or online quizzes) helps keep things on track.
For most parents, virutal and e-learning is a new practice. Practicing patience with yourself and your children will make the experience easier on everyone.
