Episode 14: Homeschooling Down Syndrome – Interview with Janet
By: Jamie Gaddy and Homeschool.com
Welcome back to the Homeschooling & Loving It podcast. We are starting a series of Interviews with moms who are homeschooling children with special needs. This week we are interviewing Janet. Janet has been a long-time fellow homeschooler… and I’ve had the privilege to watch her graduate several of her homeschooling children. She has a beautiful and amazing daughter with Down Syndrome.
Hi Janet, Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’ve been homeschooling about 18 years years. My oldest attended public school, but we homeschooled our 3 youngest children from kindergarten through high school. I’m still homeschooling my daughter, who has Down syndrome. If she were in school now, she’d be graduating soon, but being that she’s homeschooled, she definitely will continue to do her studies at home and continue to learn academics as well as life skills.
