Sharon Hensley has walked this path before.She is a homeschooling mom and educator, and is the author of Homeschooling Children with Special Needs (Noble Publishing, 1995).She is also the mother of an autistic child.She too has seen this population grow."In the 11 years that I have been homeschooling and working with families of special needs children," she notes, "I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of people homeschooling special needs children."
Some families may not be aware that a special needs child CAN be homeschooled.Mrs. Hensley notes, "I think increased awareness of homeschooling as an option is part of the reason we are seeing more families try it."The good results of homeschooling have a positive impact as well in the media coverage of homeschooling.
In addition, many of us recognize that schools cannot possibly individualize a program as well as a parent can.Mrs. Hensley says, "Many parents of special needs children recognize that homeschooling offers the only true chance of creating an individualized program that can address their children's learning problems."
When I asked Mrs. Hensley what kind of progress reports she gets from the families she works with, she said:
Mrs. Hensley is the administrator of Almaden Valley Christian School and provides services to homeschoolers around the world.Her contact information is below.
I asked Mrs. Hensley what her one word of advice would be for the parent considering homeschooling their special needs child.She said, "RELAX.You cannot fix your child's learning disability by homeschooling him or her, but you can give him or her a more appropriate learning experience.The more you accept the special needs of your child and enjoy who he/she is as a wonderful creation of God, the more progress you will be able to make."
