I want to share some exciting news about a new book for parents who are teaching a child with special needs. It is written by a colleague and private homeschool Special Needs Educational Consultant, Judith Munday, M.A., M.Ed. Judi has a heart to educate, equip, and encourage parents who teach struggling learners. She has taught children with learning disabilities for more than thirty years in Christian, private, and public schools.
During the past sixteen years, she has devoted all of her time and energy to helping homeschooling families who have children who are failing to make progress. In her private practice, Judi administers diagnostic assessments for homeschooled students, provides end-of-year testing, and offers consultations for parents either in-person or by phone.
Teaching a Child with Special Needs at Home and at School: Strategies and Tools that Really Work! offers a wealth of support for parents trying to successfully teach a child with learning disabilities or high-functioning autism. This highly readable and very informative guide is filled with easy-to-use teaching strategies and hands-on advice about “what really works.” Parents can easily implement her many practical recommendations, because she made sure her teaching tips require little advance planning–which makes them ideal for busy parents.
In this well organized and valuable resource, Judi explains how to make wise curriculum choices and shows how to modify and adapt instructional materials to ensure they are appropriate for students with language-based learning disabilities and high-functioning autism. She offers an abundance of evidence-based strategies and instructional tools, many tips for success, and friendly professional guidance. I trust that Judi’s personal experience and wisdom will encourage you. She realized that there are too many hurting parents to help personally, so she has condensed much of the help they’ll need into her book. If you have been searching for assistance in teaching a struggling learner, then this is a book you will want to have at your fingertips!
I encourage you to share the news about Judi’s book with your support group members so they can benefit from this amazing resource. It is available from WestBow Press (under Education/Special Needs), Amazon, and Barnes & Noble bookstores in both soft-cover and e-book formats.
