Many children with learning disabilities are taught at home. Like most homeschooled children, these children generally do well in the home environment with love and nurturing from their parents. Homeschooling a special needs child does come with its own challenges though.
Here are tips to help you get started and along the way:
Be well informed - do your homework
Learn all you can about your child's disability
Talk to others who have gone before you
Make sure you follow the legal requirements
Avoid burnout - take care of yourself
- Get plenty of rest and eat right.
