Quote of the Day Back to Top

Homeschooling: A Growing Option in American Education
Dan Lips and Evan Feinberg
Families cite common reasons for choosing to homeschool their children, such as concern about the environment at other schools, dissatisfaction with the academic instruction at other schools, and a preference for providing religious and moral instruction not provided in traditional schools. The decentralized nature of the homeschooling population limits researchers' ability to draw conclusions about the specific effect of homeschooling on various outcome measures such as academic achievement. However, evaluations of homeschooled students have reported that homeschool students perform well in that academic environment. Moreover, a survey of adults who were homeschooled suggests that home schooling leads to positive life outcomes, such as higher college attendance and enrollment.
Advantages of Homeschooling a Child with Autism
Laurel Joss
Many parents of children with autism have considered homeschooling at one time or another. Educating a child with autism can be a challenge, and many schools are not up to the task. Even schools with highly qualified teachers and excellent programming cannot give a child the one-on-one personal attention that a devoted parent can offer. Sadly, most schools are adequate, at best, and many parents wonder how their child will do from year to year. There are several advantages to homeschooling a child with autism. The biggest advantage is that a parent can tailor the curriculum to fit their child’s learning style, personality, and interests. In a school situation, the students are required to adapt to the teaching style and materials that are offered. Parents who homeschool can adapt the material to suit their child’s needs instead.
Bridgeway Academy
Bridgeway Academy has been a trusted homeschooling academy since 1989, meeting the highest state and national accreditation standards possible. Bridgeway’s goal is to provide families with everything needed to give a child the best homeschool education available. Whether looking for a curriculum founded on Christian principles, or one that focuses solely on academics, Bridgeway is a proven homeschool resource that will work with families to produce a customized and affordable plan that universities are taking quite seriously.
Art is Everywhere: Encouraging Artistic Exploration and Expression
Kandie Demarest
While some autistic individuals are very artistic and do most of their communicating via painting or drawing, others are less drawn to the typical art activities. For these people we have to be a little more creative and brainstorm a little to find interesting and altered ways of taking part in art. Here are a few ways to help the reluctant autistic person to delve into art.
