    Exclamation Special Needs and Homeschooling Questions

    Looking for advice and where to find resources (webites and companies) that might have things special needs children can use. We purchased a complete curriculum but some of it is really hard for him.

    Our son is 11 and has autism. He isn't high functioning but isn't low either more in the middle and a visual learner. We took him out of public school. He is in the 6th grade but he struggles with reading, math, and grammar. He is only reading at a 4th grade level and has problems with multiplication and division and I really think he was never taught anything about grammar at public school. So any help and advice would be very much appreciated!

    Hello Flamey, many of our Time4Learning members have children on the autism spectrum and experience success with our program.

    Here are a few links with more information.

    Educating A Child With Autism Spectrum

    Special Needs Education and Time4Learning

    Each grade level has access the grade above and below for each and every subject. For example, if you place your son at grade or level 4, he will have access to grades 3, 4, and 5 for every subject. You can also adjust his grade level if you place him at a level that is just not working for him.

    Hello, Flamey. Our daughter has Down syndrome and is reading at about a 4th to 5th grade level. She loves Time4Learning and from the first day she started using T4L she has shown amazing progress in reading fluency and comprehension. Her math, which is at a lower level, has also improved. One of the things we love about T4L is that she can work at her own pace and different grade levles for each subject. Because the lessons are animated and interactive, they really hold her attention. She enjoys learning with T4L! I would recommend that you give it a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain....if your son doesn't like it, you just cancel, because it's a month to month subscription.

    Everyone in the forums here is very friendly and helpful, so if you have any questions about the program or homeschooling in general, please feel free to ask. There is also a Special Needs Forum.
