you do lots of research about your child, figure out how she learns best and work your curriculum around that.
I highly recommend this:
Which was the best money and product I ever got when homeschooling.
and maybe this if you get a diagnosis.
For starters, don't self diagnose. If you believe your child has a problem, get a diagnosis.
Further, homeschooling a child with learning differences is certainly challenging, but so long as you're willing to put in the effort, it is often the best thing for them.
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
No need for diagnosis... Since you're homeschooling. Find out how your child learns: visual, auditory, etc. Then, either find a curriculum that tailors to that need OR just make your own adjustments.
My kids like moving and using their hands...labels aside... So when learning skip counting, we drew in chalk on the driveway and had them literally skip count. Learning about continents/countries/states, we made scrapbook-type collage pages for each one. They still remember the information they put onto all their cut&paste items and the flip books and pop-ups. They still like pulling out their binder and showing it off to company. (Captive audience LOL)
We've also tried to find videos/films/documentaries and even cartoons that follow-up science & history.
Rid yourself of the labels and the worries that come with them. Just learn how your children work & base everything off them, not their labels.
