    Default New to the technology

    Hi there all,

    I homeschool my 8 y/o daughter who has autistic spectrum and OCD. I homeschooled my oldest 2 children from my 1st marriage in the mid 1990's before Internet made connecting with other homeschoolers as easy as this. I let my older two girls go to high school so they wouldn't miss their prom. One daughter has graduated a university the other is starting a university. My youngest is proving to be a challenge for me but I won't give up.

    I look forward to being here among other homeschoolers.

    Doesn't all this technology make a difference in our lives? I remember the days of waiting until I could go to the library to look something up in an encyclopedia. Now if I have a question about something I just click an app on my cell phone to get the answer. I hope you will enjoy homeschooling with technology as well. My son and I have used Time4Learning for over five years now. I think it's a great way to learn and to connect with people.

    Speaking of connecting with people, have you stopped by the Florida Parent Forum yet? It's a great way to connect with others in your area. Well to Time4Learning and the technological way of learning.

    You both might want to check out the Special Needs Parent Forum. They have lots of ideas for teaching through the challenges.
