SPED Homeschool Review Crew Feedback

What was the one thing that most impressed you about this curriculum?

Well laid out, simple tools to adjust pictures, lots of imbedded supports

What should parents of children with learning needs be aware of when looking into this curriculum?

Depending on your child’s interests, you may need to upload pictures. The company does offer one on one sessions to work with you and your child to help them get going. This was also a great experience. The design of this program is very open-ended, so it will can really be used with any homeschooling style and curriculum.
