Work Space

There are options available in most homes for where students do their work. Of
particular concern when selecting a work space is the balance between quiet and
the degree of supervision.
● Well lit space in a public area of the home
● Can be a dedicated space or sometimes the kitchen table works well
● Easily supervised area– not in a student’s bedroom
● No television as this can be quite distracting
