Unschooling Special Needs
This is an UNSCHOOLING support group for parents and caregivers of Special Needs kids. We have found that NON-COERCIVE and RELATIONSHIP-BASED approaches work MUCH better for our kids than most mainstream methods of education and therapy.
Unschooling is a TYPE of Homeschooling, but it is VERY different from the “school-at-home” approach most people are familiar with. It requires quite a paradigm shift in the parents’ minds, which is called Deschooling.
You may join to LEARN about Unschooling, get SUPPORT in switching to Unschooling, or SHARE your experience Unschooling your Special Needs child.
We are a global group willing to go against the status quo of BOTH Education and Special Needs dogma.
Being the parent of a child with extra challenges can be an isolating experience.
Being an Unschooler can also be lonely since we are still a statistically small portion of Home Educators.
Let’s support each other!
