Of the 56 million children who attend school in the United States (Weir, 2020), nearly 93% reported some form of engagement in distance learning between the spring and fall of 2020 due to the COVID-19 educational shift (McElrath, 2020).With this shift, families were faced with additional time management and motivational challenges for their students who were now learning remotely. The current study analyzes the effects one family observed with their implementation of a visual schedule and positive reinforcement intervention on their third grade student during distance learning in March of 2020. Results showed a total decrease of 69 average minutes spent on schoolwork after the addition of both the visual schedule and the reinforcement interventions. It appeared that the student benefitted from the introduction of these classroom interventions into their distance learning routine in a home setting.
