Summary
School can be a nightmare for children on the autistic spectrum. Far from learning social skills at school, they may find themselves in a hostile environment where they suffer teasing, bullying, and social isolation. Home education can provide a positive - and workable - alternative. In this sympathetic and readable book, parents who home educate their children with autism or Asperger's syndrome tell their personal stories: how they reached the decision to educate at home, how they set about the task, and how it transformed their children's lives. A chapter on getting started with home education answers frequently asked questions about teaching materials, curricula, and socialization, and a chapter on home education and the law offers solid practical advice on relations with the education authority
