    RE: Teacher's Conference in Louisville Special Needs Track?

    Is the special needs track at the teacher's conference in Louisville going to be more than just introducing the new curriculum for challenged students in early grades? I want to clarify before I register that it will benefit my children who are aged 6-11 and that it's about more than just the new curriculum since I won't be using it at this time (due to the age and needs of my children).



    Hi, Heather.

    Yes, our special-needs track is for all ages.

    Throughout each day we will offer sessions on adapting classical education for special-needs children in content areas (e.g., reading, writing, Latin, mathematics, history, science, and literature). We will share tips on integrating curriculum, organizing the home or classroom, incorporating therapies, and improving language, learning and behavior -- all within the context of a classical Christian education.

    In each session, we will allow plenty of time for questions about implementation for your own situation, so feel free to bring questions with you.

    Last year our special-needs sessions became combined workshops and discussion groups, as moms of special-needs children contributed their own stories and strategies. This worked well for all of us.

    For anyone interested, we will also offer an optional single session about the new curriculum packages. Even in this session we will do more than reveal the existing materials. We also hope to elicit your requests and suggestions for upcoming levels!

    I hope you can attend.

      re: teacher's conference

      I registered for the special needs track of the conference and am looking forward to this opportunity! Hoping that it will help me with ideas for meeting my children's needs as we continue homeschooling. Excited to meet you, Cheryl b/c your book has given me hope, encouragement and just a reminder that I am not alone in my struggles (or my children's struggles).
