Homeschooling Your Child with Special Needs

How does homeschooling help kids who have had a difficult time in school? By providing a quiet, safe, non-competitive environment, free of distractions and meaningless busywork. An individualized education plan can be tailor-made to fit the child's abilities and needs. Also, homeschooling allows a child to learn at his own pace and pursue subjects that are of special interest. Hobbies and talents develop and grow. Parents can experiment with different teaching methods, eliminating those that don't work and focusing on those that do. Situations that lead to frustration can be carefully monitored, greatly reducing outbursts and temper tantrums. As one boy who recently started homeschooling told his father, "I didn't know learning could be so much fun!"
