Why is homeschooling your ADHD child a good idea?

  1. While homeschooling a child is, in a sense, keeping that child ‘apart’, it may spare the sense of being alienated. In a classroom where most are learning at one pace and in one way, a child with ADHD may decide that there are insuperable bridges that may never be crossed. The sense of being intrinsically different may last a lifetime. While there are differences between ADHD learners and typical learners, these are not matters of ability or achievement but of process.
    An excellent school, with an excellent teacher, in a small group, could highlight the abilities of an ADHD learner, but this is an ideal situation not the usual.
