Set Up For Success!

We are all adjusting to a different academic plan for our children this Fall.

Most of our children will be spending more time at home taking virtual classes, doing schoolwork and homework.

Your child’s home desk/work spot is all set up, now let’s make sure they have optimal posture when doing their school work.

Here are a few tips to improve your child’s posture and body alignment while learning:

  • Make sure the computer monitor is at a proper height so that your child is looking straight ahead, not looking down or up. You can put a few books under the computer to make it the ideal height.

  • The monitor should be arms length away.

  • Provide a supportive chair with lumbar support, you can roll up a towel to place at the base of your child’s low back for proper lumbar support if the chair does not have the feature.

  • Make sure your child’s knees are level with their hips, you may need to place some textbooks/footrest under their feet to achieve this.

  • When typing your child’s wrists should be straight, at or below elbow level.

  • Have them take a 5 minute break every 30 minutes to stand up, stretch and walk around.

Happy learning!
