223: Online Classes and Neurodiversity: Building Independence and Social Skills at Home

Guest Lindsay Leiviska talks to us about Online Classes and Neurodiversity. You can find Lindsay online at A Heart For All Students. Her podcast is also called “A Heart for All Students”. Lindsay’s tips will be helpful to those homeschooling a child with autism, ADHD, or any issue that can make learning a little more challenging for a student.

Be sure to listen to the previous episodes 125 and 126 where Lindsay explains how to modify online curriculum for special needs students

These are the topics Lindsay covers in this episode

1. The Why Behind Online or Digital Classes

  • Screen-based learning can give them the independence they need to learn more effectively
  • Support your child by “removing the audience” and giving them agency
  • Outsourcing classes can alleviate stress on the parent-child relationship

2. At What Age?

  • Completely dependent on the child
  • Consider anxiety level
  • Consider executive functioning level

3. Asynchronous vs Synchronous

  • Again, completely dependent on the child’s executive function and anxiety level

4. How much support from parents?

5. Social Time

  • Use online platforms like Outschool for social time

Bonus Tip: Allow Gaming as a way to createrelationships
