Homeschooling Exceptional Students

Using Time4Learning With Exceptional Students

ADD / ADHD Teaching Challenges

If you are the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, congratulations! You probably have a child who is highly creative and inventive. People diagnosed with ADHD have been known to score high on creativity tests.
However, parenting a child with ADHD is not easy. Children with ADHD often struggle in school, and providing what these children really need is often a challenge. A child with ADHD may struggle with learning disorders, teasing, social interaction, problems at home, disorganization, and more. Often the struggle of the school environment overwhelms the child's ability to learn.

After his assessment test, Jeremiah's teachers were amazed. He had scored above the requirements! This is after being diagnosed with developmental delays, ADHD and oppositional behavior. He went from being classified as "functioning as a 3 yr. old" to scoring 80, 90, and 100% on all his assignments. We were thrilled! Not only was our son able to focus on his work, he was able to retain the things learned. As parents, we could adjust the level of learning to suit his needs.
Our family moved back to Michigan and we needed to find a way to use the program. CompassLearning only sells to schools. We were at a lost as to what to do for our son's core curriculum. We had a letter written in our behalf from his former school principal in testimony as to how great the program worked for our son given his special needs, urging anyone that could to help provide the program to our low income family. We were then directed to, and our worries were over.
