Re: To Homeschool or not Homeschool with Asperger Syndrome
My first grader has only been tested at school and barely fits into an aspie diagnosis. He is in public school since I'm single and work full time but we have to study quite a bit at home to keep up. Pros for us: he has made friends, he does get challenged, and there are parts of school he likes (he really likes art, music, and pe). Cons: he has gotten bullied some, he makes some horrible playmate choices, he's kind of vulnerable to the other kids, its hard for him to learn in a group setting so we do have so much study time at home.
He has a resource teacher that helps in the classroom but he doesn't get pulled out.
If it was an option I think he would do great at homeschooling. 1:1 he learns so much better. I feel bad about how much time we spend studying now.
