    Question about Special Needs Package

    Hi Cheryl, Do you have any idea what Language Arts Curriculum you will be using in the Special Needs Package? I know my girls will not be able to handle the writing in Classical Composition. Thanks, Susan

    Hi, Susan.

    Fear not. Even if we eventually include pieces of Classical Composition for later years (far beyond the upcoming Levels 1 & 2), all will be incremental prior to this.

    For Levels 1 & 2, we will be creating our own special-needs writing program to teach written expression with individual words and clear sentences. Our writing lessons will be designed as a combination of proven classical methods, neurodevelopmental or "multi-sensory" teaching techniques, and a gentle pacing.

    Level 1 includes sequential printing, dictation, and copybook exercises related to phonics and reading, observational nature lessons, and simple verses of Holy Scripture.

    Level 2 introduces not only systematic spelling lessons, but also literature-based sentence writing from our read-alouds. (My own children learned to write this way, so I am excited about this!)


    We anticipate the release of Level 1 in Spring, 2015. Level 2 - possibly later in 2015.

    Thanks-
    Cheryl
