My sons have taught me that learning differences span a wide range of needs and abilities.

They’ve taught me that learning differences affect children in the classroom, and even more so, outside of school. They’ve taught me about the social implications of not being able to read at ten, or struggling to sign your name on a friend’s cast at twelve.

They’ve taught me how smart a child can be, despite what test results or standard approaches to learning might reveal.

Homeschooling a child with learning differences is not easy, but I absolutely have found it to be a wonderful educational option for our children.
