There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.
Homeschooling has been a part of imparting education before the times of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln( who by the way, are two famous medically compromised homeschoolers).
Why did we mention names of the president with special needs, you say?
Because we are going to discuss why kids with special needs would be best schooled in the comfort of home?
Children that are unable to go by their day normally like most of the kids, owing to their disability can find it difficult to get a proper education in a traditional school environment. Firstly, you are not with a child that needs special care and secondly, how any parent will ever be able to go around and make every teacher understand their kid’s particular requirement?
Hence, it is in your best interest if you enroll your child in homeschool curriculum for his customized development. If you need reasons, then we have got you covered. Keep reading:
- Kids with special needs require more time to absorb information:
In a traditional classroom, students and teachers are bound by time, and they have to complete the syllabus with such a pace that kids understand it correctly within the time-frame. Kids with ADHD, Down Syndrome, and other such development disorders need plenty of time to understand and grasp what they are regularly learning. Homeschooling facilitates learning at own pace.
- They can relax whenever they want:
Children with particular need require to de-stress time-to-time, which is not possible in the environment of strictly scheduled schools. Science homeschool curriculum can be customized per kids requirement, you being the family can design a suitable syllabus with a flexible schedule wherein your kid can relax whenever they want.
- One-on-One Interactive learning:
With the widely varying ratio of teachers to kids in school, not every child in the classroom can understand what they are being taught, which leads to them lagging behind. Kids with the particular need or any kid for that matter can benefit from one-on-one learning sessions. Not only will the kids learn better but being able to put forth questions will also develop their self-confidence.
- Parents can better identify their child’s strengths and weakness:
Special kids are unable to express their strengths and weaknesses, if not carefully observed. Unlike traditional public/private schools where not every child can showcase their strength and work on their weakness, homeschool curriculum helps parent identify their kids strength and encourage them in that particular field while slightly going over the tough parts, so that they can focus more on their strong subjects and not frustrate over their lacking area.
