SPED Homeschool Review Crew Feedback

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

It includes many life skills in the Happy Healthy Habits that are great for kids this age to learn.

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

The writing and vocabulary could be challenging. Accommodations or modifications could easily be made, but these tasks could be challenging for some learners.
