It’s not uncommon for a student to need to receive services in the classroom. When that’s the case, the student might be in a private nook or quieter area of the classroom on the computer receiving one-on-one services (with a teacher/aide nearby to help facilitate). The desk and computer can be turned in a way that works best for the student. Sometimes that means turning it in a way that’s not facing the class, for another student, it may mean the exact opposite. There are lots of opportunities to adjust the arrangement to suit the specific student and their needs.
Sometimes it can even help address a goal of attending to the assigned task with other distractions in the environment since they are working in a real-world situation instead of the quiet of a speech room. Depending on what the student is working on, it can even be helpful with promoting carryover of skills and use of strategies!
