Special Needs Nook

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—often allows children to progress faster and further than they would in a special needs classroom. 

Homeschooling your child requires your family to discover your 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 your child.

THSC wants to help you! Homeschooling 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 one-size-fits-all answer that would benefit every special needs family. There is no standard curriculum. However, THSC offers advocacy and support to families who have loved ones with special needs. 

We can help you by providing information and resources about curriculum that could benefit your special needs student’s learning style. For more information, contact us at specialneeds@thsc.org.
