Homeschooling a Special Needs Child

Jennifer Allard’s son has ADHD and is on the Autism spectrum. Even with an Independent Education Program (IEP) and 504 Plan, he still struggled with concentration in school and became increasingly withdrawn. Jennifer began researching Autism and gave homeschooling a try, working with teachers to customize his curriculum to best fit his needs. She found his intelligence and progress transformational and shares her journey and encouragement with other parents.
