Working with Home School Families: Marketing, Getting Buy-In, and Supporting for Success
Homeschooling, as an educational choice, has seen significant growth in 2020. A growing number of parents are taking the responsibility of educating their children at home. This undertaking leaves many of us wondering about the philosophy and logistics of this endeavor.
Research has revealed that home education is a viable education alternative. Many homeschool families have embraced the goal of inspiring their children to discover 'how-to-learn' not 'what-to-learn', and thereby opening up the world of discovery learning.
Homeschool families also have the opportunity to dig deep to source specific resources to target the varying needs of their children. As NILD Educational Therapists, we can be a source of support for these homeschool parents when they meet the bumps on their educational journey.
Diane will discuss the benefits of homeschooling particularly for our students that learn differently and how NILD Educational Therapy can support parents in this educational choice.
