Special Needs Identification

To Label or Not to Label • Special Needs Identification in Homeschool


Parents of special needs children often approach the subject of “labels” differently. Some feel that it’s important to specifically identify the needs of a child, while others simply want to embrace the child for the person they are regardless of a specific identification and as such adding a “label” is not necessary.  Homeschooling parents stand in a unique position because having removed the public school microscope from the equation they have the freedom to choose how they want to approach special needs identification. Today the bloggers of iHomeschool Network are sharing their beliefs, ideals and decisions regarding how they have chosen to broach the subject of “to label or not to label” in special needs identification.
