Online Homeschool Courses for ADD/ADHD Students
Many children with ADD/ADHD are drawn to computers and are skilled at using them, making online home courses a natural fit. “Some educational software is engaging, using sound and animation to attract the ear and eye. Some programs incorporate games or offer a few minutes of game time as a reward at the end of a session,” Kuhl says.
Parents can supplement other forms of homeschooling with online courses, or have their child take all courses online. Homeschool Your Child for Free, by LauraMaery Gold and Joan Zielinski, recommends online curricula and gives tips for Internet learning.
“The nice thing about online learning is that educational software is patient, and never sounds annoyed because it is tired or busy cooking dinner,” adds Kuhl.
