Recommends it for: AS children parents
Recommended to Kakihara by: Katsumi
I would honestly find this book a very usefull tool especially if I lived in countries such as Canada or the UK where as far as I can see, there are plenty of resources to take to homeschool children... However I am still glad we have found some government and private institutions that have been of a good complement in helping our AS child here in Mexico City. I believe homeschooling our children is a great path to follow but we cant forget that sooner or later they will be back to the real worl ...more

A hard area but gave me some insights into how best adapt curriculum via home schooling for Aspergers students.

Recommends it for: Asperger parents
I bought this for just a few bucks from Amazon after I was left really no choice but to withdraw my little 6 yr old from his woefully inadequate public school. His teacher had not even heard of Aspergers and was certain he had some kind of ADD. Turns out, he doesn't, he has ASperger's syndrome and a couple of other daunting but similar diagnoses. This book was more encouraging to me personally than it was very practical. It made me feel better about my decision to homeschool, which was something ...more

Recommends it for: All ASD Parents considering home education
Recommended to Maria by: Autism New Zealand Resource Library
Shelves: asd, homeschooling
I found this to be a great book with some very practical advice and ideas. I really like the resources included as well. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering homeschooling their ASD child. I have been homeschooling for a year and a half now, and we are loving every minute. It is so nice having my happy child back again. No more self-injury, stress related illness, bruises from bullies or delayed effect. Trust your instincts and give yourself credit, you know your child better than ...more

I recommend this book, not because it offers great curriculum choices or practical scheduling help, but because it shows that homeschooling and Asperger's can and do mix. I enjoyed all the advice from parents who have been there, done that, and I liked seeing that I was not alone. Homeschooling an Aspie is a great challenge and ridiculously fun - and this book helped me see that trying to fit him in some sort of box was going to break both of us. Highly recommended, especially for new homeschool ...more

I really enjoyed this book. The author sampled several families who have homeschooled a child with Asperger's and drew from their experiences in putting together her recommendations and advice. The book is full of very practical advice both for deciding whether or not to homeschool your child, and also advice about resources that may be helpful for kids with Asperger's. It is definitely a book I can see myself referring to often along our schooling journey.

I found this book inspiring in many ways. It reinforced the curriculum choices I have made for my daughter and the decision to homeschool her.

My biggest concern about this book is that her information comes from a small sample of families. But the author does give some good practical advice on scheduling issues and flexibility.
