A Few Homeschooling Musts with Special Needs

For Kaden this year I am keeping things super simple.  Our must haves to get by though are all we need for success.

We use an erasable board for math, spelling, dictation, art and even doodling while waiting for dinner.  Another must have is graph paper for math.  Kaden is awful at keeping his numbers straight and it causes him so much frustration.  With wide grid graph paper.... life is just better.  Mechanical pencils are a must, because if his pencil is not sharper then sharp he can't focus on his work.  And last but not least, fidget toys and Homer his service dog.  He constantly has something in his hand, twirling it or smooshing it.  And Homer is ready for pets when he gets overly stressed out.
