This is what we heard in January 2010 when we decided as a family that it was time to take our daughter out of public school and try our hand at home schooling. We made this decision because at the time there were no really great education options for our 7 year old daughter who happens to have autism. This isn’t to say that the options were particularly bad but I knew there had to be something better and so far I think we have found it through home schooling. We are very happy with our decision to home school.
In North Carolina becoming a home school is a fairly easy process but the state does not provide a lot of guidance and support as to how to run your home school. There are some great home school resources made available by other home schoolers and organizations and I rely on those resources, the internet and trial and error to develop what we think is a great education system for our child. I get asked a lot how I do what I do so I thought I would create this blog to share what is working for us in the hopes it may help somebody else who is traveling down the home school path.
