    Red face New to Time4learning

    Hello! I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I am a mother to 3 children and decided to homeschool a year ago. My children don't fit the "normal" mode and I found they were not getting out much out of public schooling. I have a child who is autistic, one with ADD, and a gifted child. All ends of the spectrum we have bounced around with a few curriculums, trying to find the best for us. I came to realize that each child had very different needs so I started searching for a program that allowed them all to work at their own level. We had been trying to do curriculums together, ones that were termed multi-student curriculums. It just wasn't working for us. I stumbled across this site and was thrilled that it seemed to be all I had been looking for and, most importantly, at a price I could afford! We officially began the program this week and, it's taking some getting use to, but I think it's going to be THE one that works I am still learning the ends and outs with homeschooling so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and I look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Hi there, and welcome! My family has been using T4L for more than 6 years now...we love it! It simply works for us, and it works no matter how we use it (as a core or as a supplement to something else).

    Here is a great Welcome to Homeschooling guide you might enjoy. I read it after I had already been homeschooling for a while, and let me tell you...I wish I had had something like this when I started! It might have prevented way too many nights of me crying in a closet, lol.

    If you'd like some help learning more about the T4L program, or the site (navigating, using the lesson plans, etc), I would suggest you check out this Hints and Help page. A lot of good stuff.

    One last thing - please take a moment to join your state homeschooling forum. It can be a good resource for keeping up with homeschool happenings around your state, but it can also be a good way to try and meet other homeschoolers that are local to you!

    Hi, Jessica. Similar to you, I have 3 children with different needs. My youngest has learning disabilities and requires a lot of repetition, in addition to working at different levels in different subjects. Time4Learning has truly been a blessing for her!!! She loves it! I never have to fuss with her to do school. She likes being able to work independently, which I don't mind because I can go back and look at her scores. If I find she scored low on something, we just repeat the lesson together. And like I said, because she's at different grade levels for different subjects, it's good that we are not tied to just one grade level.

    So welcome to T4L! I hope to see you around the forums again....you'll find everyone here to be very friendly and helpful.
