Hi all I'm new to the group. I'm thinking of homeschooling my kids this next year. My middle daughter was just diagnosed as having ADHD (none hyperactive) and we are a military family. So I considering HS for a while. I have no idea where to being or even how to. I'm thinking that I will give it a go over the summer, we are moving and its a perfect time to try out a HS routine.
I'm open to any and all advice that you all have. Ready Set GO!
First thing to do when you find out where you're moving is what the rules are for legally homeschooling. In Kansas, go to the state DOE website and find out what the requirements are.
As far as the actual schooling part goes, kids with ADHD benefit a great deal from the more focused, one-on-one instruction. What curricula you choose would depend upon your DD's prefered learning style, whether she reads well, prefers audio-visual learning, etc. Every child is different, so anything any other family uses may not be the right thing for your DD or your family... It'd help to know more about your DD's specific learning strengths, weaknesses, and preferences.
There's a lot of info about homeschooling kids with LDs at LearningAbledKids.com, which may help you with figuring out which programs might be beneficial in each subject area.
WELCOME to homeschooling in any case!! It's FUN and it was the best decision we ever made for our guys.. who also happen to have ADHD.
