Homeschooling for Medical Reason
by S Wilson
My daughter is a diabetic an has been in and out of school this year to doctor visits and not feeling well. I can't afford to pay for materials to homeschool her. Does anyone know if there is assistance out there to help for medical reasons so I could keep her home to monitor her health better?
Thanks for posting your question to my website. A friend of mine has a daughter who had leukemia and missed a lot of school. The school district only provided a teacher who came to their home three times a week for an hour or two. Their daughter got very behind in school and they ended up homeschooling her.
Unfortunately there are no grants or home school financial aid to help pay for your daughter's homeschooling. However, you can find lots of help and support online and from other homeschooling families. Look for a support group to join. If you need help finding one, let me know where you live and I can try to connect you to one.
One website you might want to look at is oldfashionededucation.com. There are course outlines for all grades up to twelfth grade.
Besides the internet, local libraries, homeschool support groups, and free cycle are other places where you can find free homeschooling curriculum and other educational free stuff for homeschoolers. The Book Samaritan is a non-profit homeschool ministry that helps struggling families with curriculum needs.
