    Thanks for these links. I get more and more requests from homeschoolers dealing with special needs or folks thinking about homeschooling in response to special needs. These look like great groups!

    Oh, thanks! I’m glad they’re helpful. Two great books on this topic are Homeschooling the Challenging Child by Christine Field and Homeschooling the Child with ADD (and Other Special Needs) by Lenore Colacion Hayes. Both these titles are applicable to wide variety of situations, and both authors are honest, informative, and interesting. Field comes from a more Christian perspective, but not in a way that I think would prevent the title from being useful to non-Christians.
