I just joined a coop. One mom I have met before has a 7yo. She is blind so lots of things are a challenge, but she is so positive and motivated. BUT her 2nd grade son is not reading. We decided to change one of our coop classes so I can tutor him and provide direct social skill practice for my ASD son. I tested her son today to know where to start and he only knew half his letters. I am so worried that she wont be able to teach him, but really have nothing I can do about it except teach him the best I can the 45min I am with him. I gave him homework to write each letter and draw it into a monster. Next week I will have him tell me a word that starts with each letter. I just dont know what else to do. AND my own belief that 'not everyone should homeschool' is weighing heavy on me. She says he has aspergers, but with my son having lower autism and my training in autism, I can tell he does NOT have it. I just dont know what else to do. Has anyone else had these personal ethical diliemas before??
