Homeschooling is a challenge. Homeschooling a high-needs child is an even bigger challenge that can lead to a number of very difficult situations. Thankfully, it’s also not impossible—and it is far easier for you than it would be for a classroom teacher. You have only one child, or perhaps a couple of children, to take into consideration; a classroom teacher has two dozen or more. You know your child, and have observed their patterns for years; a classroom teacher has only a few weeks to get to know your child before being expected to produce a learning environment that works for them (as well as those other two dozen children).
On the other hand, homeschooling a child with a learning disability of any kind can increase your frustration level a hundred fold, and especially in the early days, it can make you feel like giving up without ever really giving it a chance. Here’s the good news: if your child has a disability like ADD or ADHD, there are lots of modifications that can be made with the materials that are already in your home.
