Hi Ladies! My name is Laura-Ann. I am a mom of 3. My oldest is 7 and going into the second grade. He begged me all of his 1st grade year to homeschool him. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and has tested in the autistic spectrum. He is not diagnosed with aspergers or austism however at this point. He had hearing loss until he was 3 1/2 and the Dr believes that his social and comprehension delay is due to his hearing loss and delayed speech. So they believe he will out grow and test out of the autistic spectrum but we are still up in the air about that.
So here is my concerns....I work with my kids on a regular basis anyway. But I worry about falling behind where he SHOULD be. I feel like I need a lay out, of step by step what I should be working on. What do you ladies do to make sure your on track?
Also what exact steps do I need to take to make sure that I am doing everything that I need to. I know I need to go to my county and let them know I am homeschooling, but is there anything I should be concerned about, or anything that I should have a heads up about??
I will also be working with my 3 and 2 yr old. My 3 yr old Malachi (4 in Sept) is testing on a Kindergarten level. (My mom is a teacher and tested him) So I really want to start him homeschool K in the fall. Does anyone have experience with starting them slightly early. Did it work out to benefit the child? Malachi is extremely smart and very hungary for knowledge. I feel like I could do the same thing with my daughter who is at pre-k level. Any thoughts??
Also does anyone have any online suggestions for the kiddos or myself. I have tons of stuff from my Mom...(I mean TONS) but I would always love more.
Sorry ladies there is so much info...I am excited but super nervous too :) Thanks for any advice suggestions etc.
