We get to know our children better than ever before. Homeschooling allows us to learn more about how our children learn and what motivates them. It gives us a more in-depth view of what a child’s education involves. It also allows us to understand the importance of friendship for our children.
We can really see how learning at your own pace benefits learners with ADHD. We can build our own timetable and fit in breaks when it suits us. We are not limited by the constraints of the school day which can be too rigid for an ADHD learner. It’s easier to build a personalised learning plan where a child can choose their own daily structure and make their own decisions about which activities to prioritise. Without strict timetables, students are able to bend learning to their ADHD brain, not the other way around.
It’s also worth noting that some parents of children with ADHD found their children do better without the distraction and peer pressure that can occur in a school setting.
