ADDitude Magazine Endorses Homeschooling When Public School Isn’t Working

I am super impressed with ADDITUDE magazine. I have never seen one of the ADHD support organizations endorse homeschooling. If you have a spouse or a doctor who is against homeschooling, here is something that backs your position from a well-known organization.

From the article:

When a child is left behind, ignored, or frustrated in a traditional classroom setting, many parents begin researching alternatives. Homeschooling a child with ADHD or learning disabilities is not easy, but it can a student build skills, gain confidence, and love learning again.

The traditional approach to learning — a teacher standing in front of children sitting behind desks — is not the most productive for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who get bored easily. If your child is demoralized by his poor grades, receives detention for forgetting books, is looked down upon by teachers, or is bullied by classmates, he may be a candidate for homeschooling — even if you’re not quite sure yet how it’s done.
