Homeschool Myths Debunked

There are a lot of different types of children in the world who are being homeschooled. Some of these children actually have some type of learning disability, which is one of the main reasons why their parents have chosen to pull them out of school. While you don’t necessarily need to have an IEP to homeschool your child, some parents still feel as though they need one. Usually this is because their child is “behind” and they don’t want to have any issues with their school district. If you feel this way, it’s important to start off by understanding what an IEP is really all about.
