How do you homeschool a child with special needs? Kathy Kuhl discusses how to customize curriculum, schedule, and plans for your child's unique strengths, weaknesses, and interests. She shows you how to find materials and get support, and how to decide whether students need special testing to identify learning problems. She explains how to help your child develop social skills. She also tells how, if you don't want to homeschool, you can learn from homeschoolers' strategies to help you after school and over the summer. Learn about resources to help you and mistakes to avoid. For grades 4 through 12, Kathy Kuhl homeschooled her son, who has extensive learning and attention problems. Now she helps parents internationally. She helps you, whether you are only considering homeschooling or have been homeschooling for years and want fresh resources and encouragement.
Kathy Kuhl helps parents help children with challenges. After homeschooling her son with learning disabilities, she wrote Homeschooling Your Struggling Learner, a handbook for helping children with challenges, including learning disabilities, attention deficit, autism, and giftedness. This book is based on interviews with 64 families homeschooling children with learning challenges, and on her own research and personal experience. Kathy speaks at homeschool conferences internationally and advises families through her blog, magazine articles, and additional books she has written.
