Online School vs. Homeschool

Thursday, December 08, 2022

Countless parents have recently found themselves asking whether homeschooling their child or if an online educational program may be best for culminating their child’s educational needs over traditional, in-person, brick-and-mortar school options, especially in light of the dangers of sending our children to school our society has seen over the last few years. 

Post-pandemic, a myriad of parents already chose home as their child’s learning environment after finding themselves proficient in K-12 education anyway, right?  

Can online learning work for students with disabilities? Of course (work) it can! And in most cases, it can be even better!

And yes, there are those children with disabilities out there who love school, those who thrive in all aspects; you know, those social butterflies who wish summer break wasn't a thing. To the parents of these students, we salute you. 

Now, for those of you parenting a child with a disability, a child who is floundering in the sea of mass academia, you're not alone. And it's NOT your child’s fault! Whether your child’s disability is minimal or profound, they do have strengths; and with those strengths, they CAN be a successful learner.

As a parent, you are your child’s biggest advocate, cheerleader, encourager, teacher, mentor, and friend. You are dedicated to making sure they have the best life possible and access to all the good things you didn’t. We work hard to give them the world and bristle at the idea that someone might take a different approach to how they treat our children. 

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. It is an entire month dedicated to identifying and eradicating bullying. Numerous organizations from all around the nation will launch fresh materials, initiatives, and programs to raise awareness of the bullying problem and help end it. 

In this article, we are discussing bullying, how to spot the signs your child is experiencing bullying, and how you can be an advocate and protector for your child.
