Hated School - Loved Home-Schooling: A guide for parents of autistic children (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


"I still remember the day when my mother asked how I felt not going to school but learning at home instead. I leaped at the chance to be home-schooled, like fire to paper, and I never looked back or regretted it afterwards. Home-school gave me the freedom to find myself spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally; and I'm so thankful for that."

Home-school has the same traditional methods of academic learning, however, the setting is in your home and not in the classroom.

Home-school can be for any child; however, it's mostly used for children who have disabilities, children who can't cope with the traditional school environment, or children who have been extremely bullied.

As a home-schooled child with Autism and Expressive and Receptive Language Disorder, my childhood was a massive struggle. I faced many challenges that even an average child would find challenging. I have written this book to help other parents who may be thinking of home-schooling to be able to weigh up the pros and cons of whether home-schooling is right for their family.
