  • generally if a child is able to be serviced in a school (which legally they have to be) then you are not eligible for special education services if you chose to home school. The only cases I have known is when being in school is a physical danger to the child, such as one with a supressed immune system

  • if by "right" you mean special education services, in most cases no. If not, then please explain your question more clearly

    Yes. That's what I meant. Special Education services are provided at school. But I was wondering if these same services can be provided at home when medically necessary?

  • I've never heard of an IEP being available to a home schooled child, when you remove a child from the public school system generally you give away the right to school services.

    Can you share why homeschooling would be medically necessary?

  • I really don't know what services can be provided. The only thing I know is that my child sufferd from MR and Epilepsy. I'm not sure if my child being a citizen with a disability is entitled to obtain therapy at our home instead of my child having to be placed in an school.

  • There should be some sort of hospital home bound services available where a teacher comes to the house for an hour or so a day. It is only for special situations.
