Oh wow, that will be tough. I'm so sorry.


Did you know there are fields trips set up specifically for home-schoolers? I was viewing a recreational site and it had days blocked off for homeschoolers, I thought that was so cool!


I guess there are entire groups who get together for socialization purposes.


GL. I would fear I would not do it right, yikes, I didn't even get my DS ready for kindergarten correctly :-(

I'm very worried :( It's just to the point now where things have gotten so bad my heart is breaking for him. The other kids are so cruel to him just thinking about what he told me makes me want to cry for him. I think I'm lucky in that David is very advanced and that should make it easier since things just stick for him.

As a parent, you do what you have to do.

I am so sorry this is happening to David. Kids can be so cruel. At Aidan's IEP meeting the guidance counselor told me that she checks on him all the time at lunch and most of the time he eats by himself and that makes me feel really sad. I am hoping the social stories help and that he can find some friends. I am afraid that we might be in the same position you are in now in a couple of years. I have thought about home schooling but don't know where to begin. You are a great mom in everything you do for your kids. I hope it all works out.

I've been thinking that i'd be eaiser for simon to learn being homeschooled since he has such a hard time with the classroom setting. But then I wonder if that would be the right thing to do because he than wouldnt be working the issues that hold him back. It seems like a reall catch 22.


I'll be axcious to hear how it goes. I'm sure you'll do fine.

~love my red~

how does he do this?

Some of my son's sensory issues got better, without therapy, after we started homeschooling.

Hey I am new here. I have a son who has sensory integration dysfunction also. I am also a homeschooler! Personally I think you will be happy once you have actually started. The hard part about homeschooling is making the decision, but personally for me it was even harder to fight the school who claimed they knew more about what my son needed then
