    Question How to transition...

    We are exploring this life of Homeschooling. We are thinking of doing the after school for Kinder because he is in public Kinder right now. Then, transitioning to home school program either at summer break or at the beginning of first grade. He is being tested for ADHD through the school. Testing should be completed by Feb 20th. They said even if he tests for positive for ADHD they won't help him if they don't feel it's affecting his learning. He is also deaf in one ear and the school refuses to help him with that.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi! Each state has its own homeschool laws. They are all very different. If you are thinking your child's special needs might be better met at home, you might be interested in the free Welcome to Homeschooling guide. Time4Learning is a popular choice among families with children who have ADD or ADHD. Here is a page that talks about Time4Learning and ADHD/ADD.

    It is true that a public school student won't be eligible for special education services, including an IEP, unless their disability affects their ability to learn. The place to start is an evaluation, which you are doing. Here is a really good article about accessing special education services for a child with ADHD. They usually fall under the "other health impairment" category. 'Hearing impairment" is also a category.

    If we start him in after school enrichment, how hard is it to transition him to full on Homeschool curriculum. Can that be done at anytime?

    The difference is in how you use it . . . not in what is provided. You always have access to all subjects at all grade levels from pre-k through 8th (OR from 8th through 12th). You can pick and choose what your child needs for after school enrichment or you can do the lessons in the suggested sequence for a "full-on" homeschool curriculum, or some combination. So, it's very easy to change your mind. Just log into your parent dashboard and make the changes you need.
