    Question Anyone home schooling a child on the spectrum?

    Hi! I have a 9 year old and a 7 year old that I would love to home school.
    My 9 year old suffers from anxiety from being bullied. She is a A B student and is eager to learn.
    My 7 year old is a very high functioning autistic child, he is also dyslex. I have always considered home schooling, but I am worried that I can not give my son what he needs. He is very outgoing and social, so I am not worried about him not getting enough socialization. He has more of a processing disorder.
    Is it possible to home school him and give him the education he deserves?

    Thanks In Advance
    Erica
