Some Homeschool and Special-Needs Links 1
This first one is a WONDERFUL website, by the author and very humorous speaker, Carol Barnier! It is a site dedicated to the celebration of, and appreciation for, the highly distractible people in your life! http://www.sizzlebop.com/ While you are there, make sure to sign up for her emails (especially if you have a distractible – ADHD, or otherwise – child in your life). They are such a blessing by reminding you to appreciate these people, even in the midst of the seemingly crazy and random things they might do! 😀 I also highly recommend all of her books – I own, and use them all, often! Besides being helpful, they just plain make me laugh!
The next, is one of my personally favorite educational sites, for ANY age! There are well over 2000 instructional videos here for Math, Science, Test Prep, Humanities, and some miscellaneous others. From the most basic arithmetic… to calculus and chemistry, and even money and bailouts explained! http://www.khanacademy.org/#browse These are really great for the visual and auditory learners. They can be played over and over, paused and backed up, and they NEVER GET TIRED OF EXPLAINING the concept! Works for me! LOL
This last one is one that I ran across recently. http://www.eyecanlearn.com/ There are eye exercises and tests for visual perception issues. They also talk about how visual perception problems can interfere with daily life.
It is my prayer, through Jesus Christ, that there will be something useful here, for someone out there struggling in the education of themselves, or their child! Be blessed! ~Annette
