Re: To Homeschool or not Homeschool with Asperger Syndrome

I home school my 6yr old with aspie. It is difficult some days. I try really hard to keep our days routine. He is really afraid of people. Sending him to school is not an option so we muddle through. I have worked enough into our schedule so that if he has a really bad day we can skip it and stay on track. We use a lot of praise and a lot of rewards. I also did a ton of research and went to a curriculum fair before deciding on a curriculum for him.
it is really hard some days but super rewarding and I know it is what is best for him. We do socialize him but in small and structured settings. Children his age send him into a frenzie as do a lot of adults. Ok I am rambling. Hope it helps.
