special needs children

Families who have children with special needs have the same rights in Texas as families who have children with typical learning abilities. Individuals with special needs are not required to attend public school. Individualized attention, as well as the security of the home environment, many times allows children to progress more than they would in a special needs classroom. Home schooling your child requires the family to discover the child’s unique learning abilities. While there is no standard curriculum for children with special needs, the more vital aspect is understanding “how” to use the curriculum in a way that is meaningful for the child.

THSC wants to help you! Home schooling, in itself, can be an overwhelming experience when you first begin the journey. The term “special needs” has so many facets that it is not possible to give a broad consultation that would benefit every special needs family. There is no “one size fits all” curriculum. However, THSC offers advocacy and consultation to families who have loved ones with special needs. We can help you by providing information and resources on learning styles, and bridge that information with curriculum that could benefit those learning styles. For more information, contact us at specialneeds@thsc.org.
