About the Author
Kathy Kuhl did not set out to homeschool her son. Getting him and his homework out the door on school mornings was hard enough. Despite his intelligence and his excellent school, however, he struggled with learning and attention problems. She began homeschooling him in fourth grade, and continued through twelfth grade. He worked hard, made great strides in reading and math, developed interests in writing and backpacking, and became an Eagle Scout. Since his graduation, Kathy began working on this book, a comprehensive introduction to homeschooling struggling learners. To prepare for this book, she interviewed 64 homeschooling parents with children with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and other difficulties. Kathy now writes, consults, and speaks, helping parents teach their children at home. She speaks to homeschool conventions, patient advocacy organizations (including national conferences of CHADD, LDA, and ASA) and other groups. Still active in her local homeschool community, she also teaches math and English to homeschooled teens and leads a support group for homeschoolers with children with special needs. Kathy began working with exceptional children when she was fourteen. A graduate of William and Mary, she earned teaching certificates in English and mathematics and taught in public junior high school. She has also enjoyed teaching preschoolers and adults. She lives in Northern Virginia with her family and enjoys hiking and reading. You may contact her though info@LearnDifferently.com Her website is http://www.learndifferently.com/

Asking "Is School Working for Your Child?" Kuhl begins by discussing educational options for children with various learning difficulties or attention disorders, then proceeds to address issues such as evaluation, diagnosis, therapies, treatments and training. The planning chapter walks the reader step-by-step through the process of setting goals, learning about available options, and implementing a structure that will work best for your family. Subject-by-subject discussions offer a detailed look at creative ways to teach and evaluate. The final section in the book may be the most important of all, as it paints a vivid picture of a well-balanced homeschooling life, and points the reader to tools and resources for making it happen.
Throughout the book, sidebars and boxed information add detail and structure. Kuhl is frank about the challenges of working with a struggling learner, but she provides the reader with ample encouragement, information, and resources to approach the task with reasonable objectives. If you find yourself overwhelmed by a particular stage or task, it's likely that the book will have just the helpful hint you need to succeed. The other parents quoted in the book have been generous and honest with their advice and encouragement, and their experiences can help you face each day with your struggling learner.

We all have different struggles, it may be the child who is not reading, the child who has ADD and we wonder if medication is the right choice, the child is made fun of in school because he is mentally challenged. This book will help you address your concerns, let you know what it might be like homeschooling them and give you guidance and info on the journey.
