Are You Making One of These Homeschooling Mistakes with Your Learning Abled Kid?

Learn three common homeschooling mistakes and what you can do to avoid them.

If you’re making one of these common homeschooling mistakes, you can help your child (and yourself) by changing how you handle your child’s education.

Homeschooling Mistake #1 – Assuming your child is lazy, not trying hard enough, or purposefully dawdling


When your child throws tantrums, says he hates school, and seems outright defiant about his schoolwork, it’s really easy to feel like your child is purposefully avoiding his work.

When your child has learning disabilities, it becomes really difficult to determine if your child really can’t do the work, isn’t trying hard enough, is distracted, or otherwise not doing his best with his schoolwork.

It’s difficult to decide how or whether to discipline your child. What’s a mom to do?

What to Do Instead – Acknowledge Your Child’s Struggles with Encouragement

Virtually all children want to please their parents, particularly when they are young.

Children want to learn too. So, if your child says he doesn’t know an answer–he really DOESN’T know (at that moment). No child wants to be unable to understand or complete his schoolwork.

Since you already know your child has learning challenges, you can be sure those challenges will cause struggles that are REAL for your child.

Therefore, you have to assume your child’s behaviors are driven by his frustration, fear, a feeling of defeat, his difficulties with processing, memory, or other cognitive difficulties.

The key for avoiding this big homeschooling mistake is to acknowledge your child’s struggles are real and to encourage him to do his best.  After all, persistence and hard work often bring good results in the long run.

Whenever your child gets angry, is working slowly, says he can’t do the work, etc., encourage him by saying, “I know this is hard for you.” Validate your child’s feelings and give him comfort in knowing you understand his frustrations.

Helping your child feel loved and validated, even when he’s struggling, will help your child feel more secure in putting forth his best effort. If your child knows you won’t get mad or frustrated with him when he is struggling, he’ll be more relaxed and able to think more clearly.

Over time, the relaxed, encouraging atmosphere in your homeschool will create an environment where your child is emotionally primed for learning.

Homeschooling Mistake #2 – Not using assistive technology or accommodations to enable your child’s learning across all subjects

Often parents worry that the use of assistive technology or accommodations will become a “crutch” for their child. Other parents don’t even think about using technology to enable their child’s learning.

Additionally, parents may not be aware of the many technologies or tools that can help a child learn in spite of disabilities.

What to Do Instead – Use Technology and Accommodations to Overcome Barriers to Learning

Whether your child struggles with reading, writing, spelling, or math, there are ways to help your child stay on track with his learning across knowledge-based subjects.

The most critical factor is for you to recognize the separation of academic skills (reading, handwriting, spelling, math facts) versus learning rooted in knowledge and understanding.

For example, a child must learn how to decode words to read.  However, an inability to read is no reason to keep your child from learning science, social studies, literature, or anything else that usually requires reading in school.

While your child would still need remedial reading instruction to learn the skill of reading, you can use audiobooks, Hi-Low Books, audio-visual learning programs, or other types of instructional resources to enable your child to learn content-based information.

Similarly, handwriting is an entirely different skill than “written expression.” There is no reason your child can’t create compositions even if he can’t write by hand yet.  Using speech-to-text softwarehomeschooling mistakes or dictation is an excellent way for a child to get his thoughts on paper while he is still learning to write by hand.

For math facts, your child can use a calculator. Often a child may have difficulty with math fact fluency, but your child may understand math reasoning well enough to work problems if he has a calculator. For spelling, your child can use a handheld speller.

The key to avoiding homeschooling mistake #2 is to think outside of typical books and paper schooling.  Look for different ways for your child to learn content, different ways for your child to express himself, and different ways to help your child work around basic skill deficits.

Also, consider assistive technology as a tool for your child, just like a hearing aids or cochlear implants help hearing impaired people, or a wheelchair helps someone with a physical disability. Your child’s learning struggles are no different and assistive technology can enable your child’s learning.

Homeschooling Mistake #3 – Focusing on academics at the expense of your child’s special interests or talents.

Your child may struggle with completing his school work so much that your school days are longer than you want them to be.  It may seem as though you have little time to pursue outside interests.

Additionally, you and your child may both be drained of energy when you’ve finished your lessons for the day.  You may feel like you don’t really want to go do anything else.

If your child’s world consists only of academics, which he has difficulty with, he will feel beaten down over time.

Simply put, you can’t let academic difficulties beat your child’s spirit down.

What to Do Instead –  Inspire Your Child to Pursue Unique Interests or Talents

Every child needs to feel competent at something.  He must feel that his interests and abilities matter or his spirit may be crushed over time.

Children who feel they’re not good at anything or who realize no enjoyment in their daily lives end up depressed and with very low self-esteem.

Therefore, building up your child and helping him discover his skills and talents can make the difference between a child who has hope and a child who is downtrodden.

A few of ways to insure your child is able to pursue extra-curricular activities of interest to him include setting aside one afternoon per week for non-academic work, listening to audiobooks on the way two and from activities, or cutting out non-essential academic studies.

What kinds of non-essential academics might I mean?  A couple that come to mind are a rigorous study of grammar or the study of Latin in elementary or middle school.

GASP! Did I really just suggest you not study formal grammar? I DID! Let’s face it, unless you’re an English teacher, when have you ever had to diagram a sentence in your life? I’m not suggesting you skip any grammar instruction, but rather that you stick to practical grammar instruction involving periods, commas, etc.

Similarly, a lot of homeschooling moms of Learning Abled Kids see other parents teaching their children Latin, Spanish, or some other language, and feel compelled to “keep up.” Carefully watch for that “keep up with the Jones'” syndrome creeping into your schooling.

It pays to be mindful of your child’s academic needs versus things that would be academic niceties.  When your child is struggling with the basics, focusing on the core academics and those subjects that are legally required in your state are all that is necessary while your child is still learning to master basic academic skills.

Build some fun learning into your child’s school year.  Whether it is participating in First Lego League Robotics, a sport, music lessons, the arts, drama, etc., find at least one area where your child is capable, talented, and inspired.

Having even a single capABILITY can provide a great boost to your child’s confidence and self esteem. That boost in confidence can spill over into other areas, including academics, so don’t sell your child’s interests and talents short when you’re planning out your school year.

When you wonder whether you’re doing a good job homeschooling your learning abled child, noting these common homeschooling mistakes and learning how to avoid them can help both you and your child feel great about homeschooling.

My oldest child’s reading level jumped 6 grade levels in our first year of homeschooling to overcome dyslexia. Here is what our homeschooling program looked like during our first year:

OUR FIRST YEAR Overcoming Dyslexia through Homeschooling:

We used Lexia Learning’s Strategies for Older Students daily for approximately 20 minutes each day. Lexia’s program is an online Orton-Gillingham reading program, geared towards children who are nine or older, but being a computer program it doesn’t provide much in the way of kinesthetic learning. The lessons take a ‘game’ format, are interactive, and take place on a computer.


I bought the Lindamood-Bell “Seeing Stars” book and used the techniques in there for helping with sight words. We also used Language Tool Kit from EPS Books. This ‘kit’ comes with flash cards and a brief instruction manual. The Language Tool Kit is an Orton-Gillingham reading program given you create your own multisensory activities for each of the learning activities.

Our key focus was learning all of the phonemes and blended sounds through flash card drills. I must tell you that I had taken 56 hours of Orton-Gillingham training to help me effectively use “The Language Tool Kit” before we began homeschooling. The training is NOT required, but I do believe it helped me understand the means for remediation and helped me do a better job. Training in Orton-Gillingham methods is offered by a variety of providers. The International Dyslexia Association is a good place to begin when seeking a local provider.

We also completed a page in a McGraw-Hill Spectrum Word Study (available through Christian Books, but not a Christian curriculum) workbook each day. The Spectrum Word Study and Phonics Series workbooks, offered by McGraw-Hill, are good for teaching word structure, some basic decoding skills, and vocabulary. The books provide high-level reinforcement of word learning, but won’t provide sufficient depth for a child with a specific learning disability if used as an only program. For any child who can remember and recall with minimal practice, the series is excellent, and it serves well as a reinforcement activity for children who require more in depth practice of skills.

Our main general curriculum was Sonlight’s American History. I selected Sonlight because of the heavy volume of required reading. Call me crazy, but my belief is that a child with dyslexia needs to read, read, read, and read some more, in order to develop strong decoding skills. The Sonlight curriculum uses a “narrative story,” approach which provides engaging stories that my children WANTED to continue reading. Interesting reading material is a must if you want to inspire reading practice. Also, it was critical that we selected a grade-level package at my son’s reading level rather than at his grade level.

In the beginning, completing our daily Sonlight reading was time-consuming, and tedious. It took about two hours per day to complete our reading. This may sound like a lot, but a high level of exposure to reading is necessary to allow your child to progress and actually catch up. For the reading, we began with a you-read-a-sentence, I-read-a-sentence aloud turn taking scenario with the independent readers. We progressed to paragraph swapping and page swapping. By the end of the year, my children each read an entire chapter aloud each day.

A BIG KEY for my child was a constant reassurance that, “I KNOW this is hard for you, but we will work together on all of our reading. We are in this together.” It was key to remain calm no matter how frustrated my child was. When tantrums ensued because reading was “too hard”, I’d simply tell him, “Let me know when you’re done and we’ll work on it some more.” While I may have felt like screaming inside.. I knew I had to maintain my composure if we were ever going to make it through the hard parts.

I also implemented the “Blow Pop” program to deal with tantrums. My child loved Blow Pops, so if he made it through the day without a tantrum, he’d be rewarded with a Blow Pop. It was an immediate, tangible reward he was inspired by. As time progressed, his frustration and anger lessened, so eventually the Blow Pop program was phased out.

In addition to the specific reading remediation steps we took above, my child with most severe dyslexia was diagnosed with a Convergence Insufficiency, which is an ocular motor deficiency. In other words, his eye muscles didn’t work quite like they were supposed to, even though he has 20/20 vision. With difficulties in eye movement, reading was tedious and strained his eyes. Our doctor prescribed the Home Therapy System software program, which did improve my child’s tracking. This allowed him to read more comfortably.

By the end of the school year, reading was much less tedious. My son had advanced well through S.O.S., had completed the Spectrum Word Study, knew the phonemes we studied in the Language Tool Kit, and he could decode most words encountered in the Sonlight books. Best of all, we had phased out the Blow Pop program and my child now willingly and confidently engaged in reading tasks. Trying to always maintain a positive, upbeat, “you can learn this” mindset was a key to me, although I admit to going into the bathroom and crying by myself on occasion! (It IS difficult for everyone.. I won’t lie to you there! 😉

If you’d like to try the “Language Tool Kit,” I think you’ll find it pleasingly inexpensive. Here’s a link for you to check it out: overcoming dyslexia through homeschooling Language Tool Kit**Language Tool Kit & Manual, Grades K-5 By Paula D. Rome & Jean S. Osman / Educators Publishing ServiceThe Language Tool Kit teaches reading and spelling to students with specific language disability. Based on Orton-Gillingham principles, it is designed for use by a teacher or a parent.

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.

Being Certain About Your Choice To Homeschool Your Learning Abled Kid

How To HomeschoolIf you’re still unsure about whether homeschooling is the right choice for your learning abled kid, then “Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling” is a great book for helping you know exactly what you’re in for. Homeschooling is not a choice made lightly by any parent, and it is difficult to feel comfortable about the unknowns in homeschooling.

Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling” is based upon the fears I had, and which many parents have, coming into homeschooling. The book examines the fears and explains the realities after a decade of homeschooling and looking back to see where my fears were unfounded, and where the fears were a reality and how we coped with issues we faced.

Homeschooing a Learning Abled Kid is a unique challenge, and it is more difficult to find homeschoolers that can relate to your specific challenges. Thus, I don’t want you to feel like you are traveling that road alone because there are hundreds of other parents homeschooling similarly challenged children. “Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling” helps you connect with those who can help you travel this unique, and ultimately rewarding road towards education.

HAPPY HOMESCHOOLING!

Homeschooling with Dyslexia to OVERCOME it or to Overcome Other Learning Disabilities

Kids with learning disabilities usually require creativity in teaching to overcome their difficulties. At home, you can be as creative in your teaching as your child needs you to be!

When you are homeschooling with dyslexia evident in your child, figuring out how to teach your child can be challenging. However, there are lots of great tools and methods you can use to improve your child’s learning.

Rising to the teaching challenge often beats the alternative of having your child’s educational needs go unmet in public school. Learning Abled Kids is here to help you find ways for homeschooling with dyslexia or other learning disabilities. I want to help you teach your child well.


You have lots of great resources here. For example, you can use our multisensory teaching ideas to get started on the right homeschooling foot.

Learning Disabilities often exist in Twice Exceptional Children – those who are gifted with learning disability. There are many different learning disabilities that can make it difficult for an otherwise bright child to learn at home or school. The National Institute of Health defines a Learning Disability as follows:

Learning disabilities are disorders that affect the ability to understand or use spoken or written language, do mathematical calculations, coordinate movements, or direct attention. Although learning disabilities occur in very young children, the disorders are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age.

The IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), defines Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) as “a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. It includes conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia.

According to the IDEA federal laws, Specific Learning Disabilities are NOT “learning problems that are primarily the result of visual, hearing, or motor disabilities, of mental retardation, of emotional disturbance, or of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.
[34 Code of Federal Regulations §300.7(c)(10)]

Some children have processing problems which interfere with the storage or retrieval of information. Your child can have difficulty with short-term memory (holding information in his head long enough to manipulate it or work with it). He may have difficulties with long-term memory (getting info into storage for access at a later time), executive functioning (planning, sequencing, organizing, etc.), memory recall or other processing difficulties.

Your child could have other specific areas of learning difficulty in reading (dyslexia, ocular motor deficiencies, scotopic sensitivity, Central Auditory Processing Disorder, etc.), math (dyscalculia), writing (dysgraphia, fine motor delays), etc.

There are so many possibilities for difficulties that affect your child’s learning when you’re homeschooling with dyslexia or other learning disabilities. It is often difficult to determine where your child’s problem lies. Therefore, it is most helpful to have an independent neuropsychological evaluation by a qualified doctor.

Having an evaluation can also help you know your child’s strengths and how to teach your child. This site provides information on various disabilities. However, always keep in mind that this is not professional advice. No one can ‘evaluate’ your child without individualized testing and working with your child. Any help you receive here, or in the Yahoo group, is advice from people with similar experiences. The information I provide is based upon my experiences and Instructional Design training. The information can be helpful, but you must always keep in mind–Your child is uniquely gifted with his strengths and weaknesses.

Learning disabilities can affect a child’s ability to function in any single area of learning, or in multiple areas of learning. Children with learning disabilities are, by definition, of normal or above average intellectual ability. Therefore, if you’re homeschooling with dyslexia or other Learning Disabilities, know one thing: YOUR CHILD CAN LEARN!!

In fact, IDEA used to use a discrepancy formula to identify children with Specific Learning Disabilities. However, this practice was ineffective for identifying children with any degree of consistency. The reauthorization of IDEA in 2004 changed the laws so a significant discrepancy between ability and achievement is not required to identify a child as having a Learning Disability. For more about the current laws and identification of a child as having a Specific Learning Disability, visit SchwabLearning’s article, “IDEA 2004 Close Up: Specific Learning Disabilities Evaluation and Eligibility“.
