    Default learning paths for special ed versus normal versus gifted

    Hi,

    I was wondering if normal kids have the same curriculum or lessons as the special ed and gifted? which if thats the case, the gifted would progress faster while the special ed would just move along alower?

    or are there separate lessons and paths for the above 3 groups?

    The reason , I'm asking is that my kid is severely deficient in some areas while having a phenomenal memory/talent in other areas.

    Thanks again !!!

    The parent determines the grade level for their own student. The student may work at vastly different grade levels in dfferent subjects.

    The parent also determines how quickly or slowly their own student should progress. A typical student might be instructed to complete a certain number of learning activities per day, so as to finish a grade level during the school year. A student with special needs may progress as slowly as necessary, and a gifted student may skip activities or proceed more quickly.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    So whether the student is special Ed or not, they all get the same curriculum ???, the difference is that each student progress at their own rate. Thanks
