I’m a homeschooling mom of two 2e (twice-exceptional) boys. That means they’re gifted with learning challenges (yes, those conditions can coexist), and that’s why we’re home to learn. What started five years ago as a way to rescue my seven-year-old from an unbearable school experience grew into a lifestyle that, on most days, we love. We do have our moments, good and bad, and that’s what this blog is about. It’s our story of learning outside of school, sometimes at amazing speed. It’s what we’ve learned, how we’ve learned it, and where we think we’re heading next. It’s also about Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, dysgraphia, and our journey to unravel some of the mysteries of the brains of two exceptional children.
In my spare moments of time, I read voraciously, write often, and knit simply. For more about my experiences raising and homeschooling a child on the autistic spectrum, visit Aspergers at Home (No new posts past 9/2011 — There are only so many hours in a day). For more of the rest of my life, including a good dose of Unitarian Universalism, follow Finding My Ground.
Have a question about a set of plans or anything else? Either post a comment or email me at sarah dot macleod42 at gmail dot com, substituting symbols for “at” and “dot”.

(For more of my posts on Asperger’s and Autism, go to Asperger’s at Home. Time constraints caused me to discontinue that blog, but I continue to sprinkle this blog and Finding My Ground with autism-related writing.)
