Today on Instagram Sandra has been talking to us about how to reduce stress whilst homeschooling by using organisation and planning tools.
She recommended two great tools to use the first one being a wonderful app called Time Timer.
This is a fabulously visual way for everyone to be able to clearly see how long is left working on a task or how long is left of leisure time before work begins again.

The second tool that Sandra recommended is the Pomodoro technique, which is a way of blocking time up into chunks that allows you, or your child to be more focused and productive.
We’ve created a little PDF for you, which you can download below, which provides you with a really clear visual on how to use this great technique.
Having clarity around what is happening in the day is key to being successful when homeschooling. Having it presented in a visual way is essential for neurodiverse kids, and parents, and removes a whole layer of stress around expectation and understanding of how the day will be conducted.
Give it a go and let us know how you get on.
We really hope it helps.
