Last year I enrolled difficult child in the public school for a whole 5 weeks. It was an absolute nightmare! As a formerly abused child with separation anxiety, ODD, ADHD, and PTSD - touching him is the biggest mistake the adults around him can make. Guess what? The middle school teachers didn't care - every time he'd have an outburst, they'd touch him. When that made him react instead of "putting him under control" as they like to say, they'd punish him. 5 weeks and we were both ready to be done with them! This past year we homeschooled. He did amazingly well - actually looking for ways to learn about what interests him. We've had very few arguments and absolutely no melt downs about learning. We've both decided that we'll continue homeschooling through what would be his high school career. What we need now is some support and ideas to continue his learning through the summer. There's a great program here called Home Connections that provides ideas and opportunities for homeschooling, but they shut down during the summer months. I haven't been able to find anything like it that keeps going through the summer. Any ideas? Money's very tight for us, so many of the "normal" summer things - camp, etc - are out of the question for us. Thanks in advance!
