Why I decided to homeschool my child with High Functioning Autism

Choosing to homeschool my child with high functioning Autism

To homeschool my child with High Functioning Autism was not a decision to which I easily arrived.  However, when your child isn’t average, their schooling might not look very average either.  Aging out of Early Intervention, at age 3, meant we would need to be included in public pre-k, or wait 2 more years (without services) hoping there were no regressions.  Being accepted into special education was a hard-fought battle.  When you have a child with High Functioning Autism, they tend to not qualify academically, or even under the autism diagnosis.

Working with Reluctant Writers – week 2

“I don’t know what to write!”

One thing that keeps kids from writing is the fact that they struggle with organizing their thoughts.  Looking back now, at how I wrote papers I am just in utter disbelief.  I want to say that no one ever really taught me how to organize and pre-write… but then again, it could have been that my ADHD brain was checked out.  I honestly have no idea.
