Homeschooling Children with Unique Needs, Part Two

During this two-part series, homeschool mom and former teacher Felice Gerwitz, who holds a degree in Elementary Education, Learning Disabilities, and Early Childhood Education, talks about homeschooling children with a variety of learning styles and unique needs.Episode #19 – Unique needs may be remedial, gifted, illness, and everything in between. During this two-part series, homeschool mom and former teacher Felice Gerwitz, who holds a degree in Elementary Education, Learning Disabilities, and Early Childhood Education, talks about homeschooling children with a variety of learning styles and unique needs.

Realizing that she was taught to teach to a child’s strengths but never how to work with their weaknesses, Felice saw that the public school system was failing students with needs that didn’t fit with the norm. Then as her own children grew older and she saw they had unique needs of their own, Felice sought a better way to help each of them educationally.

Sharing from her special education background and over 35 years of homeschooling, part one of this two-part series touches on the unique needs of each of her four children and her journey to finding methods to meet those needs. Her children are now grown and productive, successful adults. Listen in to find out how she thought outside the box to accommodate her children’s learning needs and how you, too, can teach a unique learner.

Felice Gerwitz is a creative, energetic, outside-of-the-box thinker. She is an author, hosts several podcasts, and is the founder of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network and the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network. Felice is a life-long Catholic Christian who loves and serves the Lord Jesus Christ. A graduate of Florida Southern College, she is a former teacher with a degree in Elementary Education, Learning Disabilities, and Early Childhood Education.
