2. Sibling Privacy Shields

At home, sibling work-stations reduce distractions and rivalries, induce calm, and foster independence and task completion.


3. Personal Work Station

A little privacy can help many children focus and concentrate by reducing distractions and creating a calm work space. Of special value for children with ADD or those on the autism spectrum.


4. Practice Folder

At home, parent involvement can drive our PRACTICE IS POWER philosophy. Have your child practice their arithmetic, printing, and spelling and then ask them to show you their work.
