Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

Hi, I have four kids on the spectrum and, although I don't homeschool I do a lot of one on one work with my 5 and 8 year olds, who are both nonverbal.

We did it for most of Tim's 6th grade year. It was at the time of the shooting at Columbine, and he worked himself up to the point of developing hives at the thought of going to school. If we did get him in the door, he would run for safety, and we spent the better part of an hour chasing him in and out of bathrooms, closets, hiding spots. We had a tutor come to our house a cuople times a week. and he worked beautifully for her, He did independent reading and plenty of hands-on stuff, like cooking, and I think it was quite successful. The next year, he went back as if nothing had happened. Don't know why, but then school worked well, and continued to be great for him thru high school..
