Question Me again, new question!!

OK, I am really thinking I am going too homeshcool. I'll try Kindergarten and take it from there. I am looking at different programs now. My main conern now, is that I know my dd needs some speach therapy. Nothing major, strong vocabulary, strong communication skills. She just has problems with some sounds, and tends too stutter when she gets excited, can't get the words out fat enough. I need too check with the school and see if I can take advantage of special programs like that if I homeschhool. Does anyone have any experience, with something like this and how did you handle it?
Thanks!

No personal experience, but ...

I've heard of people doing this - homeschooling and still using the public school's speech therapy program.

I would suggest contacting the speech therapist in your local school and discussing it with him/her. Before you agree to anything though, find out what the laws for homeschooling are in your area. Make sure the school isn't requesting any more info than they are legally entitled to. Check out www.hslda.org to find out what the laws are for your state, if you don't have access to a local homeschooling group.

I've heard a few horror stories in regards to this - some families have school districts that feel it's an 'all or nothing' deal. If you don't have your child in public school, they won't help you. Yet, I believe that these services are available to "all school-age children" and therefore your child would qualify.

But, don't be discouraged! I've also heard of many families who have no problems with their school districts in cases like this.

Good luck, and keep us informed of how it's going for you!

Speech Help

In my state, children that are home schooled or privately schooled are still entitled to speech and language services in the public schools. I do see parents bringing their children to my school just for that service. You are a tax payer and the schools are saving a lot of money by your homeschooling. I would definitely demand speech services if your child requires them. They should do an evaluation for you and not only service your child, but also offer you suggestions to help at home with the problem. Hope this helps!!!

There you go, Aubry!

If all else fails, convince your hubby to move to Louisiana!

chuckle Found my curriculum! Yeah!

I am so happy! I found some curriculum too use! It is called Learn at home Kindergarten or something like that. aI can't remember. It covers all the subjects in one book, I got it brand new from Ebay for $23.50. Now that I have the basics I will just add things as I need them. I also found a kindergarten required curriculum guide on the internet that I printed. I'm on my way!!
