Hi! My name is Leslie. I am a SAHM of 2 boys. My husband works 2 hours north of where we live at the moment.
Ryan is my eldest son and he is 5.5yo. He is in a PPCD program with inclusion to Pre-K. He will be going to ESY during the summer. Ryan has Autism, Cognitive Comm. Delay, and Motor Incoordination. Ryan is reading at a 1st grade level and doing math at a kinder level. Ryan is working on potty training. Ryan sees many therapists and doctors. He has a limited diet due to sensory issues. Ryan has an immature gut and if he catches the stomach flu or has diarhea, he can miss a whole month of school.Ryan understands a lot more than he can tell me. He just learned his name in April 2012. He learned how old he was in the past 3 months.
Liam is my youngest son and he will be 3yo in 2.5 months. He is a firecracker and doesn't sit still. He just recently graduated from ECI for a Speech Delay. He talks a lot and wants to do "work". Work is coloring, worksheets, construction, cooking, and computer. Liam eats a lot of different foods and is fearless. He has the scratches and bruises to prove that he is my daredevil.
My boys are complete opposites of each other.
I want to supplement Ryan's schooling when he is home during school breaks and sickness. I want to re-direct Liam's energy into learning.
Welcome!! I'm Chrystal. My boys are starting 5th and 2nd in July (we don't use the same schedule as public schools). My older has Aspergers and motor delays, but he's also gifted. My younger is gifted and has progressive hearing loss. I like homeschooling because I'm able to customize their educations according to each one's particular needs. Sounds like you'll be doing the same thing. That's wonderful! Let us know if you have any questions!
