Can I Homeschool my special needs child? YES!

So, your child is special needs and public school isn't going well and you have decided MAYBE to homeschool! But are worried if you can do it....... YES, YOU CAN!

Yep, wrote that is all caps because I was yelling it at! You, as their parent can do the best for your child and if that means homeschooling be it! Have faith!

Wait, how do I start? First, breath and then get out that computer and google!

If your child has ADHD, homeschool auditory central processing disorder, homeschool dyslexia, down syndrome, autism, aspergers or ? you CAN homeschool them!
Here are my hints and tips:

  • Find a homeschool group related to your childs needs. This will help you learn to teach them and give you a chat group of parents in like situation.
  • Find a homeschool group period to how you want to homeschool, secular or religious or ? Many of these have their own sections for special needs kids PLUS they are open to options in your area, other homeschooling parents to talk to in general, deals on curriculum and reviews on curriculum.
  • Find a local homeschool group if you can! Great for socialization and some Mom/Dad to other parents time!
  • Sit back and enjoy the ride! Nothing is better than spending time with your child,watching them grow and learn while you grow and learn alongside them!
If you have a special needs child and have any other tips for parents looking into homeschooling, pipe in and post them!

Happy Homeschooling!
