Homeschooling and Special Needs
Challenges are as good for homeschooling parents as they are for homeschooled children. One of the biggest challenges in teaching a child with special needs is learning to let them lead when it comes to their education. We often have our hearts set on a style or curriculum we choose with the best interest of our child in mind when we choose it, and when it actually comes time, we don’t want to acknowledge it won’t work or is not working. Our challenge, as parents, is letting go and following the lead of our child. For a lot of children with special needs, the challenge lies in communicating to us what they do and do not love and understand, as well as how they learn, apply, and retain what they are being taught.
