SPED Homeschool Review Crew Feedback

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

This resource contains a vast amount of carefully selected and critiqued material on many subject areas related to History and Social Studies for all ages and grade levels.

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

This resource needs to be somewhat parent-led and supervised as to what content is picked for age level and ability level. Video products once selected could be watched without direct parental supervision. Pay attention to the parental notes on some as they advise parents as to potential objectionable elements.
