I'm going to begin homeschooling my LD daughter next month.
I loved her public elementary school, especially last year (5th grade.) The her ESE and general ed teachers were fantastic. The problem is she would be eaten alive at her assigned middle school. The private school choices were: not able to accommodate her (she's on a 3rd grade reading level and 4th grade math level); at a location over 50 miles away; we were extremely uncomfortable at; or a couple where the tuition was in excess of $20,000/yr.
I was considering dual enrollment, to put her in the middle school for just reading and speech and homeschool her the remainder of the day. After weighing it out, we decided it was best to just homeschool her, period.
Yes,and sometimes family judges me as slack because of my dd's learning issues [/b]
I get that too. And it kind of irritates me because Angie and Brandon both had Early Intervention services. I also sometimes think it is because they were both preemies. (Well Angie wasn't technically a preemie. She was born at 36 weeks). I think that it may have something to do with it though.
