Homeschooling the Special Needs Child: Your Complete Guide to Successfully Homeschooling the Child with Learning Differences

Years ago, I wrote a book on homeschooling special needs children that was published by Random House (through its Prima Publishing Imprint). The book is no longer in print (originally published in 2002), and quite honestly, I disliked the title that the publisher insisted upon (“put ADHD in the title, that’s hot right now, it’ll sell!”). So I am putting it on my website, with a title that is more appropriate. Give me some time to upload the whole book, though.

“A wonderful book laced with insights and strength of spirit.”

John Taylor Gatto,
author of Dumbing Us Down and The Underground History of American Education

“Lenore C. Hayes holds the reader’s hand through determining whether symptoms actually constitute a disorder or are simply a normal childhood trait, right on through negotiating with medical and educational bureaucracies (this advice alone may be worth the price of the book!). A valuable addition to the homeschool bookshelf, highly recommended for anyone homeschooling a child with special needs.”
