    Cool I need advice

    I recently took my child out of his special education school because i really did not see any real progress. I was really nervous about my decision, but I think it was for the best. His new school was so far away from home, and the traveling from bus to bus took a toll. I live in the city so this was really difficult. So i decided to homeschool him myself. My question is are there any support homeschool programs for children with autism?

    Here on time4learning we have a special needs forum as well as a special education forum. You might also want to check with Nyhen to see if they know of any resources for special needs or autistic kids. I have friends who our homeschooling kids with autism but they are mostly in New Jersey. I know it can be done. The one on one teaching is actually a lot better for kids with autism than a large classroom is.

    Yes, of course it's the best way out. But remember that you should not forget about society. He should spend a lot of time with people because he should learn to live with them. I believe everything will be ok. Wish you and you child good luck and health and happiness.
