I know i am not equipped to teach dd what she needs to know to be successful school wise.  I work closely with her teachers in public school and supplement where needed at home.

 Hi! My little one has been in preschool since his diagnosis. He is in a public preschool and they have a great special ed program.  HIs ABA therapist comes to our house 2x a week. However, my husband and I have been looking into options because we're not sure we could stand sending him to school and not being there to protect him.  I know this sounds overprotective but I will always be no matter what.  Right now he always has an aide with him but starting kindergarten he won't.  I don't know how I can imagine that.  I'm hoping he starts communicating with me much more.  Otherwise it will be homeschooling or a special school.  Never send him away. Just drive him as far as I have to go and pick him up.  I just consider Braden my 24 hr job that I absolutely love. Most people can't say that about their jobs I don't think!:)  I think you should go with your gut.  If you feel your child is strong enough to stand up for himself that's wonderful.  My guy will just stand and smile as other children are nasty to him because he's different.  I can't have that.  I wish you the best!

I think it is a great if the parents are committed to it. Homeschooling is more than a educational choice it is a lifestyle.

I did homeschool my kids until this last year. DD was in 1st grade and DS was in 2nd grade.

I wouldn't because we live in an area known for its great schools.  I agree that public schools aren't perfect, but ours are pretty damn good.  I believe in a parent's choice and right to homeschool and I do think it's a good option for certain circumstances and certain families.  But generally speaking, my personal feeling is that most kids benefit from some form of more formal schooling away from home and parents.

I think it can be great or terrible depending on how you do it , you personality and your child's personality. I could not do it I don't think because I would not it right. I have known friends who left there older kids at he to teach their younger kids while they went shopping... And others who have a regular schedule and plenty of outside activities. All in how you do it
