by Kathy Kuhl Crisis schooling, emergency homeschooling, school at home, mandatory distance learning–what do you call what you do? And if it’s hard for families with neurotypical children, what about the rest of us?
With families home with struggling learners because of the school closings, I’m speaking online more. Parents who never intended to homeschool want help for kids who learn differently–kids with dyslexia, ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, or other challenges.
(Sometimes giftedness is in the mix, too. It’s a special need, too!)

New workshops to watch
- April 2, at 7 PM EDT, I gave a new talk, “Crisis Time Schooling at Home for Students with Disabilities.” You can watch it on YouTube or right here.
- Topics include:
- setting goals,
- customizing your homeschool environment and schedule,
- finding and adapting curriculum,
- building on your child or teen’s strengths and passions, and
- nurturing emotional health and family life during the crisis.My hosts, the Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center of Virginia, PEATC will post this webinar later on YouTube. (If you don’t see the link here, please ask me to post it.)
- Friday, March 27, with Kristen Eckenwiler and Kathy Kamibayashi (two dyslexia specialists who are also veteran homeschoolers). Q&A on “Have a Special Learner Suddenly at Home?” Hosted by the Home Educators Association of Virginia, it’s available here. We had many families join in who see this crisis homeschooling as their chance to test-drive home education.
Like last week’s post on webinars I recommend but I’m not in, I’ll update this as I have time.
