homeschoolingI recently ran into a friend who has it on her heart to homeschool.  I nearly lost it when I saw her--actually, I did cry. But she’s not quite ready to take the plunge, mainly because her husband is still a bit skeptical about what homeschooling entails.

April is designated as Autism Awareness Month.  Autism, or Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today. By comparison, this is more children than are affected by diabetes, AIDS, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy or Down syndrome — combined.
