May 26, 2006, Newsletter Issue #129: Homeschooling Learning Disabled Kids

Tip of the Week

By the time students who have been labeled as "learning disabled" since first or second grade reach grade 5 or 6, they are often labeled troublemakers, but parents who have taken these 11- and 12-year old terrors out of school often find that, after only two or three months, their formally rambunctious personality completely changes so that the former troublemakers become treasures to be around!

Parents whose children have been labeled as having severe learning disabilities worry that they would have no idea how to teach their children themselves. I recommend that you visit a learning styles consultant to help you figure out the best way to approach teaching your child, as more often than not, these children simply have different learning style that, once discovered, can be utilized in your homeschooling program with great results.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
