If your child has ADD or ADHD there is a pretty good chance that by 6th grade you have faced a number of problems. Your child may be exhibiting behavioral problems, which lead to her getting in trouble in school. Additionally, you may be facing academic problems that may or may not be related to the behavioral problems.
Children with these disorders have trouble concentrating, yet at the same time they seem to crave more and more input from many different sources. Because of this, they can be very focused on something they have interest in, such as a computer game, or favorite hobby, yet not be able to concentrate on an assignment for school long enough to get it completed.
Homeschooling often is a solution for these issues. First of all, you will have more patience with your child than a teacher with 25 other students to attend to. You can let her speed up in subjects she has a good grasp of, and slow down on subjects that she needs more work on. You control the environment, so you can control the distractions, and because the environment is familiar, there will be less distractions to begin with. You will probably see a change in your child’s ability to cope very soon after beginning to home school.
