  • Home Educating our Autistic Spectrum Children: Paths are Made by Walking
    by Kitt Cowlishaw (Editor), Terri Dowty (Editor)
    ISBN: 1843100371
    School can be a nightmare for children on the autistic spectrum. Far from learning social skills at school, they may find themselves in a hostile environment where they suffer teasing, bullying, and social isolation. Home education can provide a positive - and workable - alternative.

    In this sympathetic and readable book, parents who home educate their children with autism or Asperger's syndrome tell their personal stories: how they reached the decision to educate at home, how they set about the task, and how it transformed their children's lives. A chapter on getting started with home education answers frequently asked questions about teaching materials, curricula, and socialization, and a chapter on home education and the law offers solid practical advice on relations with the education authority.

  • Home Schooling: Answers to Questions Parents Most Often Ask
    by Deborah McIntire, Robert Windham
    ISBN: 091611984X
  • Home Schooling: Status and Bibliography
    by Frederick M. Lawrence (Editor)
    ISBN: 1590334833
    From left to right on the political spectrum, there is at least one note of agreement: the nation's school system has not delivered universal quality education. Accordingly, debate has raged over how to rectify this situation. Should the government increase funding, encourage privatization, some of both? Another option, though, has emerged and is seemingly gaining popularity-home schooling. Citing both substandard education and displeasure with school environments and curricula, many parents have decided to teach their own children. Supporters say it is well within their rights to raise their children as they see fit and that at-home learning is superior to the public system. Detractors claim that home-schooled children are deprived of social interaction and the broad-based education provided by the system. Neither side wants to cede ground, making the issue of home schooling an integral part of a wider national debate on education. In this book, the specific topic of home schooling is presented from all relevant sides to give a complete picture of the present status of the issue and its potential for future resolution. Following this overview is a thorough and carefully selected bibliography of literature about home schooling from all viewpoints. Easy access to his important resource is then provided via author, title, and subject indexes.

    by David H. Albert

    Availability: This item will be released on April 15, 2003.

    Building on his success with And the Skylark Sings with Me, ("Truly inspirational," Paths of Learning Magazine ) David H. Albert's new collection of essays tackles the questions that parents actively invested in their child's education want to know most. What makes children learn fast? What method works best for teaching reading? Math? What is the basis for scientific understanding and excitement about science? (Hint: it isn't mastery of facts and figures!) Albert's work is strikingly controversial. How important is spelling? Ask the founding fathers--many of them didn't know how. Albert shows how you can use the groundbreaking concept of flow,increasing challenge to build increasing confidence, to propel your child's learning to new heights. In another essay he tackles that show-stopping conundrum: what to do with teenagers? As ever, his perspective provokes: parents aren't the pivotal part of the answer. Includes the stimulating essay, "How Not to Homeschool" in which he has homeschoolers provide their best answers to this question. From history to music, Albert delights, cajoles and coaxes the reader into a stunning revelation: your child's learning can transform what you know and how you know it if you take the plunge and get involved. The cover will be the result of a contest of homeschoolers for art depicting the voyage of self-discovery. For details, email

  • Homeschooling: A Patchwork of Days : Share a Day With 30 Homeschooling Families
    by Nancy Lande
    ISBN: 0965130304
    From a bedroom community in Nebraska to a farm in Vermont, from families who rely on workbooks to those who have sworn them off, this in-depth examination of the lives of homeschoolers covers a wide range of people and methods. When author Nancy Lande started homeschooling more than 10 years ago, this is the book she wanted that didn't exist. What better way to create your homeschool than reading about others and picking and choosing the styles that appeal to you? Lande has corralled a variety of homeschoolers and, with some deft editing, allowed them to speak for themselves. Every chapter features a different household on any given day. Many of the writers are mothers, but a stay-at-home dad and several children tell their tales as well. Their detailed descriptions start in the waking hours of morning and get down to the nitty-gritty information of everyday life in a homeschool: how moms fit in showers, how chores are divvied up, how reading and research are gently initiated, how parents set aside time for themselves.

    These writers invite the reader into their homes and advise, "Don't mind the mess." Their passages are often funny and unflinchingly honest. They aren't embarrassed to tell you they whipped out SpaghettiOs for a hurried lunch or stole a peek at CNN while ignoring the chaos in the playroom. Some of the families have created highly structured school environments within their homes, with desks and sharpened pencils. Others promote freestyle learning, with their children sprawled across the house working on projects or reading in between walking the dog, playing games, and riding bikes. The majority of families here live in Pennsylvania, the author's home state, but one writes from as far away as Scotland, another lives on a mountain in Alaska, and yet another checks in from a college town in Texas. Their learning logs, reading lists, and journal entries, along with family photos, help illustrate the book. The quilt they piece together is a great service to those wondering how to approach homeschooling. --Jodi Mailander Farrell

    The formative years are the most critical to a child's education. They lay the foundation for developing learning skills that last a lifetime. For that reason, homeschooling during those early years takes on considerable importance to parents dissatisfied with traditional schools. Because of the unique challenges (and opportunities) of teaching the very young child at home, author Linda Dobson offers smart solutions to help every parent get off to the right start in this endeavor. In Homeschooling: The Early Years, parents will learn why homeschooling makes sense for this age group, the magical difference involved parents can make at this stage, creative ways to promote socialization among young children, appropriate use of technology in the early years, and tailoring your curriculum to meet your child's individual needs.
