Welcome to Jm and to the LD and Special Ed board. I am Jennifer, mommy to Alexis who is visually impaired, autistic and has moderate MR. She is in special ed K, and is coming along very well in her new program.

How old is your son? Does he enjoy school?

Thank you. He is 10. He loves school some days, hates it others. We had a bullying problem this year, but it was handled.

For me, homeschooling was very hard. I had some medical problems at that time and things were a real struggle for a while. That has improved, so things are fine! Plus I am not naturally a special ed teacher, so I personally struggled. We were also terribly isolated.

He asked to go back to school this year, and so did his sibling, so I let them! They both want to continue next year. We have a homeschooling mentality, so our home life is lots of fun, and although they are missing out on things by going to school, we still do a ton of cool stuff after school and on weekends.

Sometimes he says he wants to be homeschooled again. He likes being social. Even though he has Asperger's, he loves being around kids.

Next year he will be going to a wonderful, very small private school that is set up for kids like him. If it "clicks" they he will stay. If not, I don't have a problem homeschooling him for middle or high school. It's a few years away, though.
