In this post, the mother of two boys with learning disabilities discusses dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, all of which are considered "specific learning disorders." They have to do with reading, written expression, and mathematics, respectively. According to The American Psychiatric Association, a child must show difficulty with at least one of these areas that does not improve after six months of targeted help.

- Homeschooling a Dyslexic Child
- Homeschooling a Child with Dysgraphia
- Homeschooling a Child with Dyscalculia
- Hands-On Activities for Homeschooling Children with these Disabilities
