Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

I started partial homeschooling since last year and after few months of adjustment, we are moving forward. Watching my autistic son learn is so addicting. He's like a sponge. I've never seen him like this before. I wonder if he's maturing or it's the homeschooling. Whatever it is... I am so loving it!

Research says: Homeschooling! believe it or not, special needs children do better at home.

In my experience, it really does. I think even if my son doesn't have autism, I will still homeschool him if he showed the same problem.

In my case DD has ADHD and ODD, not severe as autism but still the school was clueless. Second DD did okay in school, but has ADHD and does home school medication free! Now I won't put a child in public elementary. I know better.

I can relate to you. I just wished I've done this sooner. They can't give my son the one on one attention I thought they will give him in a small class setting. He was learning fine at home so I know that it was too much distraction that prevents him from learning. The teacher was pretty happy with his progress and the review worksheets on his basic math doesn't showed erasures. It means, he wasn't guessing anymore.

My spectrum child is like that as well. It's beautiful! Especially since I know he's building confidence and self-esteem, and he has the freedom to learn in what ever way his brain wants/needs!

That is so true! I am still in cloud nine. All my hard work was never wasted. Homeschooling is no longer intimidating for me. We're both learning at the same time and we get along well.
