Free Webinar Replay: Lessons Learned — and Shared — by Homeschool Families That Help All Students
Kathy Kuhl explains how to customize your child’s education to tap into his or her strengths.
The notion of homeschooling your child is equal parts enticing and overwhelming. The investments of time and money, potential for social isolation, and family-dynamic considerations are all intimidating. Yet many parents find that a customized homeschool education can nurture a child’s strengths, improve his academic performance, boost his self-esteem, and reduce family stress.
Families that homeschool make the world their classroom, and encourage students to build on their passions through a flexible curriculum and appropriate accommodations. But if your family cannot homeschool, listen up: These academic and psychological benefits need not apply only to homeschooled students. They can be harnessed and applied creatively for children enrolled in mainstream schools as well.
In this webinar, parents and educators will learn:
- How adopting a “homeschool view” raises a child’s self-esteem and performance
- How homeschooling practices can help any child conquer her work
- How resources and support systems built for homeschooling families can help your child
- Why parents homeschool students with ADHD
- Misconceptions and truths about homeschooling a child with ADHD
- How to customize any child’s education to tap into his or her strengths
This ADHD Experts webinar was first broadcast live on December 1, 2016.
