What this book will NOT tell you..
This book does not provide a “must use” list of curricula for any given disability, but does offer suggestions for programs that may help with specific learning disabilities.
The book’s focus is on helping you figure out what your child needs rather than giving “one size fits all” solutions that seldom meet the needs of every learner.
Your child is unique, as you already know, so finding a unique solution that meets the learning needs of your child is your goal.
Because children have widely varied learning styles and learning needs, the book takes an approach towards helping you narrow down the choices. “How To Homeschool Your Learning Abled Kid: 75 Questions Answered” provides suggested resources for specific learning disabilities your child may have. If the suggested resources don’t meet your child’s specific needs, hopefully I’ve provided enough information to enable you to find an effective program for your child.
Also, the 50 states all have different laws so, “How To Homeschool Your Learning Abled Kid: 75 Questions Answered does not list the specific details regarding what you have to do to homeschool legally in your individual state. However, the book does tell you precisely how to find the information you need. The book also DOES provide information and resources for complying with a wide variety of legal schooling and reporting requirements.
Similarly, “How To Homeschool Your Learning Abled Kid: 75 Questions Answered” does not tell you exactly what to teach your child at each grade level because that would be a book all by itself. However, the book does direct you to free resources on the Internet that you can use to know what to teach your child at every grade level.
