My son has aspergers , adhd, fine motor delay, sensory processing disorder and health problems that why i hs him with gca (public cyber academy k12) my daughter is in 5th grade and in focus(gifted) and she is bored to death! They arent challenging her at all! With gca she can go on to the next grade when shes done her work for the grade shes in. The work at your pace would be great, she loves school her grades, math 100, science 100, social studies 97, language arts 99 so she is bored! She has her homework done before she gets home she needs to be challenged. My concern is i have my hands full with my son. Im worried she wont get enough attention from me. Now i spoke to gca they said middle school is pretty independent if the child is smart and wants to work like her. They would share a computer and both have classes to watch/participate in. I talked to a mom today whose children are in gca, and she has a 17yr old who graduated from gca and is a SOPHOMORE IN COLLEGE AT 17!!!! I want that for my daughter she is so smart! She has been telling me for awhile she wants to do gca im just so scared with my son. I also dont know where she can work we only have one desk and i cant only have 1 working at a time bc she will work all day she loves school. It will be so challenging im just scared i dont want to screw up their education but the local shool is not challenging her at all! She also has a very strong personality and i worry she might get a big attitude towards me if there is something she doesnt want to do. I should also mention im a single mom, no boyfriend nothing dad is not in the picture im truly alone with no help and im disabled, lupus attacking my joints, osteoarthritis in my knees 2 herniated discs in my back, my health isnt good. I want to do whats best for my kids which i think is hs with gca im just so worried about the time and attention between the two, oh my son is 6 and in kindergarten . I dont even really know what my question is lol but any comments suggestions?
