Product Description

Review

If you are embarking on the home Education journey, or even thinking about it, we can recommend this book wholeheartedly. -- Communication The diversity of accounts is refreshing, with a wide range of viewpoints and home-educating approaches. There is thought-provoking debate, throughout several chapters, on the advantages and disadvantages of 'labelling' children, and a refreshing account with a twist at the end by 'Mark's Mum' in the chapter entitled Liberated by the Label. More of the issues discussed are not exclusive to autistic spectrum children, and the book deserves much wider readership. Education professionals at all levels would do well to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about, or working with, autistic spectrum children whether or not they plan to home-educate. -- Education Now This is an inspiring and often very moving book which I would recommend to all parents as it covers many core issues about education, parenting and psychology. -- Home Education Advisory Service

Taking the leap into the unknown as far as Home Teaching is concerned must rate up there with that moment when you realise that you are in labour and there is no going back. While teaching your average child at home would seem absolutely crazy idea on times, those of us with "special" children are up against the establishment and professionals too. This book is packed with heart warming accounts of parents of special children of very differing abilities and how they succeeded where "formal" education had failed. It has useful chapters on finding support, information and reading resources. The chapter on the Law in England and Wales is well written, clear and concise. I'm glad to have read this book so early on in my education! It's nice to know you are not alone.

Format: Paperback
I was only two pages into this book when I shouted out "at last".
This is a must read for anyone who feels they are banging their head against a brick wall with the School or family. I have spent so long being told I am over protective of my son. Being patted on the head by Teachers and feeling useless. Having the "we're the professionals leave it to us" talk, and all the time feeling deep down something was wrong and I needed to do something. It won't give you all the answers on how to home educate, but it will make you feel a lot more empowered and ready to face the opportunity if you so wish. I love it, take my word buy it, you won't be disappointed!

Excellent book. Had been thinking about home educating my child for about 2 years but was always too scared to take the plunge. Started this book one Saturday morning at 4.30am during yet another sleepness night worrying about my son and then couldn't put it down! Finally gave me the courage to deregister my son, and he is so much happier now.
