Hi Monique and ((((((((WELCOME)))))))))) to PBS and the Homeschool Forum.

I homeschooled my grandson who has high functioning Autism last year. I used the ecclectic approach. Online stuff, living books, unit studies, lap books, coop classes, all sorts of stuff. We had the best time and he did so well. Any time you want to chat just PM me.

Hi and welcome!  I have a 10 y.o. autistic daughter.  She's always been in public school, but I homeschool her older brother.  I work very closely with her teachers and therapists, though.
