    Default Grade Levels and Advancing

    My daughter is autistic and struggles with reading comprehension and also with math. She is in 3rd grade doing 2nd grade math and reading. If she isn't advancing past a certain point is it okay to just keep her in 2nd grade subjects? I don't know if it is required that she be on grade level with our situation.

    Hi! Welcome to Time4Learning.

    No, it is not required that she be on grade level. That is what I love about Time4Learning. It is a curriculum, not a school. We are still the teacher of record. We use the curriculum as it best fits for our children. My daughter has Down syndrome. She is in different grade levels for different subjects and she works at her own pace. She is definitely not at grade level for her age, but she is progressing wonderfully and enjoying learning. That's what is truly important.

    Thank you for the information! I was just worried that it would be required she be on a certain level by the end of the year, but that is just not possible in my situation. Thanks again!

    That's one of the biggest benefits of homeschooling. You can let your DD progress at different paces in each subject as she is able. She can be at second grade in one subject and seventh in another! We had a WIDE variation when we began homeschooling because my DS was a non-reader when we pulled him out of public school and started homeschooling.
