I just found this forum and hope to learn much. I am the mother of 6 children. Four have graduated HS, one has graduated college, and three in college.

I am checking into this for my 5th child. He is 16 and a junior in HS. He has been an A student up till recently. In May of this year he was attacked by 3 drunk men (we think they thought he was some one else) and hit in the head on the left, posterior side.

Since that time he has had severe headaches, trouble sleeping, a very short fuse and gets frustrated easily. We tried to have him go back to school this fall and he is doing very poorly in anything that requries reading. Our school has been sending home work and I read to him and he does it. Our thought was that he would be able to go back soon but I don't think he is going to be able to.

He does not have problems with math, in his midterm progress report (right before I pulled him out) he got an A+ in Advanced Math and an F in English. So the numbers and working in math has not seemed to be affected by his head injury.

He would like to graduate with his classmates (very tiny school, 12 in his class) so I told him we would look into this for his juniior year and see how it goes.

I will look to those with experience and hope to learn here to help my son.

I am so sorry that happened to your son. You can definitely homeschool him for only one year if that is what you need to do. If he is at home, you would be able to continue reading to him to help him with his work. He wouldn't feel pressured and could work at his own pace. He could also sleep late in the mornings if he hasn't rested well the night before. I hope homeschooling goes well for both of you. Welcome to the forum!
