We live in a world that assumes that anyone who deviates from the established school timeline “has something wrong” with them. Late readers are a large portion of this group.
What if I were to tell you that not all late readers have a learning disability? What if I were to tell you that MOST late readers do not have a learning disability?
It’s time to stop looking at children as inanimate science experiments and treat them as the unique individuals they are.
We homeschooling parents are professional worriers sometimes, don’t you think? It’s understandable. We’re paving a route for our families in a direction we’ve likely never traveled before.
One of the most common concerns homeschoolers possess is literacy. After all, it’s foundational to functioning in society.
Unfortunately, though, we often place arbitrary schoolish timelines on our children for no other reason than that it’s all we know.
Take advantage of the flexibility afforded to us in homeschooling and break that school mold.
