We began our homeschooling journey eight years ago. Since that day we have found out that our children have a genetic disorder. It causes a large variety of medical and learning problems. As the years passed it was obvious that I too had serious health issues. I have lupus.
This has brought our homeschooling journey to many unexpected places. We have homeschooled in the hospital, many a doctor’s office, and therapy parking lots. Four of the kids are on the autism spectrum and have varying levels of sensory issues. The wide variety of problems the children have dealt with or are dealing with has left me uniquely positioned to cover first hand a large variety of problems.
