Special Needs Homeschooling

Blog Awards

A reader e-mailed and asked if I knew of any curriculum geared towards special needs, learning disabled, children. She is prayerfully considering homeschooling, and cant find a lot of resources for this area. Here are a few resources that may help. If others would like to share their blog or website information in a comment please feel free.

NATHHAN Homeschool The stated purpose of NATHAN (National Challenged Homeschoolers Associated Network) is to encourage homeschooling families with special needs children, in ways that glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to find Christian homes for children with special needs.

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine has just started an e-newsletter for parents looking for help for the children. It will be written by homeschooler and author Christine Field. It's going to be for parents of special learners. That can mean a learning disability, or ADHD, or a different learning style. The goal of the e-newsletter is to equip the parent/teacher of that special learner, with encouragement to do the job the Lord has given you. Her blog Christine Field Notes has all the details.

Ann Zeise at Homeschooling A to Z also has bunch of links to special needs websites.

Any one else with some tips?
