Special needs children

Vol. 56, Prg. 21–25
November 29–December 3, 2004

In the one-on-one, distraction-free learning environment, children can overcome challenges at their own pace and in their own way. And homeschooling allows special needs children to learn with the people that care most about their success—their parents. This week, Michael Farris discusses several important considerations for homeschooling special needs children, such as obtaining special services.
