A friend of mine started homeschooling her special needs child a few years ago, because his medical issues made being in the classroom downright dangerous.

I hope this helps you on your journey, whether you are homeschooling a child with special needs or considering it. Check out more articles on Meeting Your Child’s Learning Needs at The Canadian Homeschooler website.
