Does homeschooling REALLY work?
YES, it does! How though, that may be the better question…From personal experience of homeschooling my three kids at different stages, I can say that is works perfectly, if you are willing to plan well and you are organised.
Does homeschooling work for EVERY child?
Each child has strengths and weaknesses and while in mainstream schools the goal is to teach all children at the same level and speed in classes defined by age, not ability, in homeschooling that is not the primary objective. So, I believe that home education works greatly for each child, due to the opportunity of setting up a learning environment that is specially designed for the individual child.
Does homeschooling work for children with SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN)?
Children who have complex learning difficulties or mental or physical disabilities have the chance to be taught at a level that is suitable at the time, which can, depending of their needs, be adapted at any given time in a homeschool environment.
My youngest child, age 7, has proven that home education with learning goals that are specifically outlined for her, with lots of love and time to develop at her own speed works very well; despite her disabilities she is very capable of learning; at her own pace and in her unique way.
I am so happy and grateful that we were able to make the right choice for her, so I wanted to share this short video with you, in which she reads two pages of a reading Level 4 primary school book.
