I'm always amazed when reading recommendations for helping the LD child learn: one-on-one attention; no distractions; a comfortable, familiar environment; and an individualized program. Sounds like homeschooling to me! One word of caution: If you try to duplicate a typical school curriculum at home, you are going to run into the same problems the child experienced at school. Your goal is to emphasize your child's strengths, work around his perceived weaknesses, and instill a love of learning. There are many ways to accomplish this goal, and using textbooks, worksheets, and rote memorization is the least effective. Choosing a Homeschool Curriculum will help you find information about accredited schools and creating your own curriculum.
