With school starting all over the country, (or starting in a MONTH if you live in Northern Idaho), I just want to share some references with those of you who are advocates for your child's educations. Whether your child is home or public schooled; is gifted, has learning disabilities, or both... there are references for you here.
First I have a quick reference to a one hour webnar and handout which shows how home scholars do compared to public scholars both academically and socially. It also shows why homeschooling works! :D
Check out the link if you are interested:
Another website you might like if you are interested in information about homeschooling through the high school years and graduating your kids with homemade transcripts that can get your kids scholarships is as follows...
Here is the email of the amazing lady who hosts the sites just mentioned if you need expert advice. Lee@thehomescholar.com
I also, just spied in my inbox (while writing this post - amazing timing!) a letter filled with a slew of links I'm really excited to check out and think some of you may be as well . So I'm just going to copy and paste that email, activate the links, and place it here along with credit where credit is due...

Today I discovered some FREE sites that could potentially be of great help to our students. Here we go:
E-Books Directory - "E-Books Directory is a FREE web resource which contains links to free downloadable e-books, technical papers, documents, as well as user contributed content, articles, reviews and comments. E-Books Directory is a service to students, researchers and e-book lovers." The best reason to check this out is because an E-book can be read aloud with a text-to-speech program!
VARK Learning Style Inventory - FREE! Using the VARK learning style analyses, you can analyze your learning style, find out what you need to do to help you learn most effectively, and take steps to convert any learning experience to one that meets your needs!
Reviews of Some of the Best Free Tutorials, Classes, Self-Study Materials, Videos, Audios, and More. FREE! Fascinating selection of tutorials in the left side bar!
If you ever come across a site you find interesting, please share it with me so I can share it with my readers!
Do you have a friend whose high school teen has a learning disability? Please tell them about my list at http://www.conquercollegewithld.com.
So there you have it! Thank you both, Lee and Joan!Happy Learning and Educating to you all!
