We got this book shortly after pulling our highly G / SPD child from school. At time of doubt & frustration, it was great to have this easy to read, but very detailed book that described so much of what we were going through. It gave us the confidence that we were not 'overreacting'. Now it's over a year since our homeschooling began. It's changed all our lives for the better & our child is thriving beyond our expectations. This book gives you a realistic look at the issues to consider.
I have homeschooled for over 3 years now and it has been such a great change from the stress we dealt with before. Some days are challenging, and this book helps deal with some of that in an easy to read way.
The clear, realistic and practical guidance in this book was instrumental in my taking the leap into the scary but exciting land of homeschooling my daughter. Highly recommended for parents of gifted kids - and any other kids - who do not easily fit into the mold of traditional school.
We bought this two weeks before deciding to homeschool our child.
Thank you for writing this book. It has taken so much stress off of our family since we finally made the decision to approach my son's education in a more intelligent way.
