California Homeschool Or Charter School For Late Birthday Kindergarten...?

California Homeschool Or Charter School For Late Birthday Kindergarten...?

My child is 5 and turns 6 in Dec. (I know that's when they start to count your child as truant if not going anywhere for an education). She is registered at a public school but so far we haven't had the best experience and they school hasn't been able to do anything to make us feel… read more

In PA the online schools we have access to are paid by the home school. So you can sign up anytime. It just takes a couple of weeks to get you up and running. they mail you the computer, printer, headphones, and information. Because you are online, you can finish on a different timeline than local schools. They may be busy now helping others, but should answer your calls during normal weekly hours. It is much more relaxing, they also gave us a support parent who would check in monthly to offer advice or a helping hand.

Check and see if your school has an AU program ( class room for only Autistic kids). My daughter has been in an AU class room since K and it's a great benefit for her. I've also spoke with the school about having my daughter's private ABA therapist spend time with her in the school in order to help with Behavior issues... So far so good.
