our experience with the NDIS so far

34281573820_3126399e03_z

I know some of you are in areas that are waiting for NDIS to roll out or are just waiting to get a planning meeting. We finally got a plan last week and are so excited about it. I thought I'd put a few things down that helped us and how long it all took..........patience was definitely something needed. Why it's so important When the NDIS was first announced I thought it was a such a good thing because of the families I knew who had children with disabilities...never knowing we would need … {Keep Reading...}

how to convince someone about homeschooling

34024329501_2346e52e64_z

This was a question I would put into google before we were homeschooling….and as the enrolment papers for my little boy sit in the kitchen it’s something I have to come back to.

resources for special needs homeschooling

33209089451_044280d665

  I’ve reviewed  a few of the books that have really helped me and put a few resources that we are using. Unfortunately there is no special needs curriculum that you can just buy to homeschool and in NSW an IEP isn’t enough for a homeschool plan. You need to meet the curriculum (in all […]

why we are homeschooling

33209089451_044280d665_z

  People have been asking why we are homeschooling our littlest girl. At the end of the day there was a big difference in the quality of teaching between last year and this year and she was being babysat each day. Every day the email would come in with what they did – morning circle then […]

We’ve also got zucchinis growing like crazy at the moment so some of these dishes I’ve added zucchini to as well as giving some away at preschool and to the neighbour. Why can’t I have some of the other delicious […]

Yes that’s how it feels right now. I just sent one off to school who really wanted to go and now have another little girl home with me. And we are all loving it. It was a big decision to make this month but we had always known that if there was anyone to homeschool […]
