I'm hoping to pick the brains of the Gransnet Teachers Posse and anyone with experience of Home Schooling
My 7.8 year old grandson has been assessed as dyslexic. Across all of the testing spectrums he scored highly on only 2 aspects and had low scores for the remainder, so it seems like quite significant dyslexia.
It's only Day 1 of knowing this so my daughter is exploring all of the steps that can be taken for additional support etc etc.
One of the things she is considering is Home Schooling. There's endless information online about this but I'm trying to track down information about the day to day realities of Home Schooling.
Do you have to provide a whole 9-3 school day? Do the Education authority provide teaching resources? Can parents who educate at home access SEN input? To what extent is the home schooling provision monitored and assessed by the Education Dept?
I believe there's a flexi scheme where a child can spend part of the week at school and part at home being educated by the parent. I wonder how on earth this works and what it does to the school stats?
Any thoughts or information would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
