Homeschool Wednesday: Daily Blog Review

Today's subject is one that is near and dear to my heart: homeschooling Autism. I know it can be done and I also know that often, homeschooling is the very best choice for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder. So much so that I spend a good bit of my valuable time questioning why my boys are going to school. *sigh*

I know that, for this season, public school is the answer. Three years ago, if you had asked me about sending my kids to school, I would have never believed it would happen. As long time homeschoolers, we were quite content with our family-oriented lifestyle. But then along came Autism and everything changed.

I can't complain, my boys are doing very well. I believe they are thriving on the schedules and routines that are required by public institutions. Or maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better. My heart will always remain open to the idea of homeschooling. You just never know what God has planned for your future.

And with that thought in mind, I continue to read about how others homeschool their children with Autism. Today's blog, Our Homeschool 2 is the personal story of Anne Basso. Anne blogs about many things that are relevant in the life of a mother, but the highlight for me is the homeschool post list. Anne covers hot button homeschool topics like motivation and socialization, as well as several posts recorded as Spectrum Saturdays.

If you have children on the Autism spectrum (like me!), or are just interested in learning more about Autism, visit Anne's blog to get a feel for the life of a mom of children with Autism.
