The Therapy Environment
It is important that you have the correct environment available either at home or within your school to receive online therapy. If therapy is taking place at home then parents need to be made aware of what creates the most suitable environment to receive therapy.

Quiet

Space should be quiet, with low background noise.
Noisy rooms can be distracting for pupils especially those who have difficulty with language and communication. So think about the best possible environment for the pupil you are working with.
If it is too noisy the therapist may also have trouble hearing you and the pupil which can affect the effectiveness of the intervention.
The therapist will help you to find a suitable environment within your school and they will test it out with you before you bring children for therapy to make sure
