Homeschooling with a disability

 Homeschooling with a disability

If you feel that your child suffers from a disability that

seriously hampers his ability to stick to a routine, then 

homeschooling is your best choice. The child will be constantly 

under your supervision. But he will be gaining a lot of quality 

education, in spite of his disability. This is rather surprising, 

considering how children with disabilities are stigmatized in 

public schools.

Goal setting is an important part of homeschooling a child with 

disability. Set the number of working hours per week for the 

child. A child with a disability may have his bad days. Structure 

the learning hours according to the needs and interests of the 

child. Use the computer. This way, he will have all the 

necessary information right at his fingertips while staying within 

the confines of his home.

Field trips and other educational activities are just as 

important. Get help from your support group. Visit places of 

interest and interact with other children in the group. Take your 

child out for some activities, so that he can socialize. Let him 

set his own pace with making friends. This will help in 

strengthening his self-esteem.

Above all, remember that homeschooling is just the same, even when 

your child suffers from a disability. You will just need to look 

for the right opportunities and the easiest alternatives to 

achieve the same goals.
