Hello. I have two boys- one toddler and one schoolage. Both of my boys are special to me, but in school terms one is a "special needs student".(You would think every child would have special and unique needs-just saying)It had been on my heart to homeschool for a while, and that is where we had begun our journey. But I had been told by quite a few that it was a bad idea for my schoolaged son, who needed the socialization. He has a highfunctioning autism, which is a fancy way of saying hes verbal. He has major sensory issues, motor skill issues, health issues, adhd, oppositional defiance,hyperlexia, social issues and more. He also tends to elope in a desperate attempt to not go to school. He is primarily homeschooled, but is currently enrolled in a catholic school which he attends maybe once or twice a week at a threeyearold prek level(which I feel is inappropriate). Because of both how we perceives school and how he is actually treated, I think it is time to make the leap over to disenrolling him. We primarily use Christian Liberty Preschool Curriculum and misc other handpicked curriculum. Science is very important to him, so he is currently working out of a first grade book( he is five).
We are Christian-Catholic, and also hoping to eventually find a church that better accepts and feeds ALL of us, not just those abled.

I think your son will benefit from being "fully" homeschooled and you can make an effort to find ways for him to socialize with kids his age. Best wishes and welcome to the forum.

Welcome, midlomommy! Homeschooling is great! Hope you find some good helps here, I am new too. Don't give up on the Catholic faith! It is beautiful and precious. That said, there are sadly, too many in our church who are not loving, accepting, or kind.
