Do you have a child who is gifted or twice exceptional?  Or a child or teen with sensory issues, like Sensory Processing Disorder or ADHD?

Our daughter struggled with both of these things in her early years, and recently graduated from college, cum laude.

Be encouraged.  Homeschooling can be such a great way to go for twice exceptional kids.  

This page is all about our homeschooling journey, 2e, and special learning issues such as SPD, ADHD, handwriting helps, and aids for struggling readers.

 If you have a child struggles with reading, focusing, and visual distractions, or a teen who just gets distracted by the other words on the page…my family recommend trying the Reading Focus Cards.   I like how they work to eliminate distraction, helping the reader to focus on just the words at hand, at the time......They also have an app for computer use.
