Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

I was wondering if anyone else was homeschooling children with special needs? ADHD, Autistic, Aspbergers, Mood Disorders, physical needs, etc.

Just wanted to make sure I'm not alone.

My six year old has asd. We homeschool our two older NT children. So we never considered school for him. I wouldn't send them so why would I send him . Lol

 My youngest suffers from abdominal migraines, a weak immune system, and mental delays (although that has not yet been diagnosed.  She is more at a 6 year old level than 8).  My middle child has an anxiety disorder, mild OCD and bipolar.

How many moms out there would consider ADD and or ADHD a special needs challege?  

I am curious because we have never thought of it that way and all of our kids have one or the other and a few have a combination of both.

We do because of the severity that our children have it. If it was more mild and not such a huge factor in our day to day activities then we wouldn't. I forget that DH is ADHD. I can't forget the girls are. If we don't stick to their schedule and their meds then life is turned upside down.

Thank you for telling me your opinion. If I may ask, how often do your girls have to take medicine?

I think it can be a learning difference in a flexible learning environment. But in a conventional school setting definitely a disability.

They take one dose in the morning guaranteed. If we're having a particularly bad day we have a supplemental dose we can do. We try not to do that one unless its super bad or we have something going on late in the day/evening that we need them to be calm and focused for.
