Description

In this accessible and honest look at homeschooling, Lisa Rivero explores the diverse faces of homeschooled students and the ways in which it can help children with special learning needs. She corrects misconceptions through profiles of diverse families and addresses the changing and complex needs of children today. This book addresses the major questions parents are bound to have as they consider this option: socialization, curriculum, special needs arrangements, resources, and more.

Her book Creative Home Schooling won the 2003 Glyph Best Education Book Award and was named Best HomeSchool Product of the Year. She lives in Milwaukee.
