Is anyone else homeschooling their special needs child?

I am hs my 5yr old, who has alot of developmental delays and FASD. We have been working on letters and numbers since he was 2.5 and he still struggles with 1-10 and his abc's. My goals for him this year are for him to be able to recognize his letters and numbers to 10 and to write his name.
I also have a 3yr old that has developmental delays and FASD. He isnt really interested in anything but lining up his trucks right now so Im not going to push anything for him.

My DD is 9 and doesnt have any special needs and is going into grade 4 or around there.

My older one has Asperger's, SPD, ADD, and neuro/motor delays. He's been going to therapy since he was born and is generally doing very well. I make some modifications, but I try to do everything as normally as I can most of the time. Academically, he's ahead of his peers, but his social and motor skills are now, and liklely will always be, behind.
