Kathy’s Special Needs Workshops:
Thursday noon-1 p.m.
Distractible, Impulsive, Hyperactive & Happily Homeschooled
Got a child who can’t sit still? A highly impulsive teen? A distracted or inattentive student? Change your homeschool to help your child improve his or her focus and nurture that wandering, creative mind. Veteran homeschooler and author Kathy Kuhl also discusses the related character issues, and how to teach if you’re distractible, too.
Thursday 2-3 p.m.
Understanding Your Child’s Learning Problems
Wish you understood your child’s difficulties better? Want to find strengths amidst problems? Do “labels” help? Join author and homeschool veteran Kathy Kuhl in exploring the process and benefits of diagnosing learning problems. Unravel your child’s learning puzzles!
Help People Respond to Special Needs with Grace
How can we relate well to people with special needs? How do Christians view suffering and disability? How can homeschoolers help other families homeschooling with learning challenges? What should Christian parents be telling their children about people with disabilities? Consider how God can use special needs to strengthen all his people.
Special Needs Panel
High School Planning for Out-of-the-Box Learners
Learn to understand your child’s needs and strengths better, so you can set goals in all areas, not just academics. Then learn practical tools to remediate and accommodate disabilities and to help you find appropriate college or other post-high school training—and strategies to help you and your teen keep going. Veteran homeschooler and author Kathy Kuhl shares interviews with dozens of parents who’ve walked this road and resources based on experience.
When Writing Doesn’t Come Easily
Does your child struggle to write, to form letters, or to compose a clear paragraph or an essay? Learn about causes of writing problems; handwriting tips; and accommodations for problems with handwriting, memory, organization, spelling, and vocabulary. Kathy Kuhl homeschooled her dysgraphic son (who loves to write), taught composition and English, and has written three books.
