SPED Homeschool Review Crew Feedback

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

How the teacher guide explained all steps with the complete list of materials and activities were labeled by which learning styles were used.

What is the one thing that parents of children with learning needs should be aware of when looking into this program?

Showing a word misspelled and having the student to correct. For some students seeing a word spelled incorrectly could lead to confusion.
