When I was starting out homeschooling, I read a book by Maria Montessori called “The Absorbent Mind.” It was tranformative to me as a parent and teacher. I highly recommend it to everyone who works with children.
I am doing a presentation on Sunday at the Digital Homeschool conference that covers some of my thoughts on it SEE HERE, but I also wrote an article on a similar subject for SPED Homeschool.
I am currently working on a collection of teaching techniques I have learned from a variety of sources. These have been essential to teaching my special needs children. This is the very first of that collection, but more is being written as I study for my Master’s in Special Education and teach my two exceptional sons. You can this article read it below.
