Special Needs
THSC has a section completely devoted to Special Needs Home Schooling. There is no standard curriculum for a child with specific diagnoses. THSC is available to consult with you on the variety of curricula available, the different learning styles that your child may possess, and the organizations and companies that promote themselves “Special Needs Friendly.” THSC does not endorse a specific group or organization. The resources we provide are merely a starting point for you and your loved one with special needs. It is for you to determine what is best for your individual situation.
