I wasn't quite sure where to start a thread like this so I chose here. I work full time 40+ hours a week. I cannot quit or even go part time. My SO has a decent job but my benefits are better so I carry the insurance etc etc. Anyway since about third grade my daughter has been on a nightmare rollercoaster of schools and teachers. I keep getting railroaded on the IEP process.....her IEP is currently only for Dyslexia though I gave them the Asperger's diagnosis back in August. She is at the end of her 6th grade year. I really feel like the school is just floating her through because she is a student that can't fit the curriculum etc. I just learned today that her practice for reading fluency is like this: a student in the SN class who has the same barriers she has, is listening to her read a passage and marks down when she misses a word or forgets to pause at the right places etc. What special needs teacher in the world worth his/her credit would expect two children with the same barriers to be able to know if the other is doing it right or not!!!!! My daughter has dyslexia as well as ASD so I know she would have trouble following along the paper and also hear if it has been read correctly. And my daughter's IEP Goal is dependant on this kind of practice. This is the blind leading the blind here! So I am fed up with it. I really want to homeschool her but I just don't know how to do that while working full time. She can do very little work unsupervised and it would be hard to keep her on a schedule when I am at work. Her dad is aspie too so he cannot be a co-teacher with me. I cannot leave her to her own devices all day long then expect her to sit down and get serious those last three hours I have when I get home and expect her to want to work. She has a very short attention span anyway and high anxiety. And I can't expect her to get it all done on the weekends either. I just don't know what to do. She all ready knows she wants to have some kind of career in horses so I would rather center a home education around that. But Missouri Home School requirements I hear are very strict on providing proof of work etc. It would take the equivalent of a full time job to prepare all her lessons etc. Sounds like I am talking myself out of it, lol But I am heartbroken to see her struggling everyday and I see her giving up. Any advice? Any full timers who are making a go of homeschooling a SN child too?
