Every child has the potential to function better, and often much better, given a real opportunity. In this follow-up class to “Homeschooling, Smarter is Better” on Thursday, Sara Erling will get more specific on how to use neuroplasticity and how to change your vision of what can be for your child. In addition, attendees will learn the significance of addressing the whole child and how the traditional way of having “experts” each address, focus, and prioritize their areas of expertise once a week is not necessarily going to produce the best outcomes. Targeted Home Education opens doors and presents opportunities for special needs children that have never existed before.
