Library Thursdays: Homeschooling resources

One option for educating your child is homeschooling. Some parents who would like to homeschool their children worry when they have a child with Down syndrome that they will not be able to or others suggest that it will be too hard. Many find that it is a good choice for their family and that there are benefits for their child with Down syndrome. There are many resources available online to help.

Amy Dunaway has written a guide to Homeschooling Children with Down syndrome (available online) which gives her homeschooling story and views and lots of resources that she has found helpful many of which are available in the DSNSW library.
Her blog also offers many suggestions.
