Review of ‘Homeschooling the Child with Asperger Syndrome’

Are you considering homeschooling a child with Asperger Syndrome?  Are you having trouble finding just the right resources?  Lise Pyles has written “Homeschooling the Child with Asperger Syndrome:  Real Help for Parents Anywhere and On Any Budget.”  This small book is filled with answers to most, if not all, of your questions as well as things you may not have considered. 

Filled with ideas, curriculum, learning styles, teaching aides and much more targeted for children with Asperger Syndrome, Lise’s book will guide you into unfamiliar territory.  Lise teaches you with step-by-step instructions and helps you work with your child’s interests and rituals.  Each chapter covers an important facet of your child’s education.  

The appendices alone are worth buying the book as it contains resources for homeschooling, Asperger Syndrome, and education.  Chapter 9 covers topics such as burnout, socialization, motivation and siblings.  Even if you decide not to homeschool, this book will be a valuable resource throughout your child’s school years as a supplement to what the school system either cannot or will not teach.

 Just two years ago when I was making the decision to homeschool, this book was all I could find on the subject; however, now as I search there are many, many books to choose from.  I truly believe this book will be the only book you will need to make an informed decision.


About aspieparent18

I am the mother of a daughter who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at age 12 after years of working with teachers, physicians and finally a wonderful child therapist. I struggle. She struggles. No one understands. I hope this blog will offer encouragement and support for those who have an Aspie and information for those who support a parent with an Aspie.
