Special Needs and Unschooling

Posted on April 5, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

We've been talking about unschooling at the store lately.  There seems to be a multitude of definitions on what unschooling is, but we've somewhat concluded that "true" unschooling means:  A child learning through the home environment by doing what one wants, when one wants, where one wants, in the way one wants, with parents and others functioning as facilitators and mentors.

Is anyone out there "unschooling" a child with special needs?  Does it work?

It seems to me that the intense needs of teaching a child with any special learning need requires flexibility, but intentional teaching–especially in the skill areas of reading, writing, and math.  Any thoughts or opinions?
