Mommybostic Posted December 18, 2011 Share Posted December 18, 2011 I already homeschool my "typical" 11-almost-12-year-old. I have a lot of guilt over the fact that I send my 10 year old to school every day. She is severely delayed in all aspects--physical, mental, auditory processing and speech. She doesn't speak at all. She can walk, but has low tone and poor balance. She is in a class for students whose disabilities are moderate, severe, and profound. My question is this: does anyone out there homeschool a child with this level of delay? I'm not sure what I can offer her. I worry about having her around other kids, because she really doesn't have friends. How do you report her progress or work when she doesn't do regular work? I'm just a little confused as to how it would even be possible, and if I should even be considering it. I love the thoughts of having them both here, but I don't want to hurt her or slow down her progress any more. I'm not a licensed speech or physical therapist, and our school system will not offer special education services to homeschooled children. I'd love to hear some good dialogue about this--begin now! Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
