Homeschooling a Child with Learning Challenges

This workshop was presented in the 2015 Special Needs Conference - REGISTER HERE for FREE live access!

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.

I cannot view her video.  I was able to print out the sheet, but could not see it.  Very unfortunate because now the link has exired and I am not a Gold Member and will not be able to see it.  I waited weeks for these lectures to come and have not seen one due to continued technical errors.
