Autism mid-functioning and SPED
20 September 2021, 1:57
I have just about had it with the ineptitude of the public school system and how they treat my daughter. Getting anything done is a kin to pulling out ones own hair.... that being said, how well does your system work for those that are special needs and autistic. Right now (due in part to the horrible teachers) she is in 6th grade (held back 1 year), reading at 2nd-3rd grade level, writing at 1st-2nd grade level, math at 1st-2nd grade level.

Parents have reported that homeschooling with video lessons really help students with special needs. Since students are able to learn at their own pace, they have the option to go as fast or slow as needed.
We have two modes the student can work in. The regular 'Teaching Mode' starts at the beginning of the course and takes the student all the way through. At the end they will receive a completion certificate.
The other mode is called 'Tutoring Mode'. This allows the student to see a list of all the steps in the course and jump around and only do the steps you want them to. Some parents use this option because it allows the flexibility of skipping portions of a course.
In 'Tutoring Mode' the student will not receive the completion certificate if they have skipped some steps, however, the work that was done by the student can be printed in a detail report that shows a "final" grade based on the work that was completed. This allows students to move on without completing everything in the course.
