Online Schooling

TWO wasn't doing well in school.  And the teachers weren't helping as per the 504 we have- this has been an ongoing battle now in our second school year.  We knew we could do a much better job at home but struggled with the constant supervision Two would require and wondered if we should simply wait for the evaluation for an IEP and hope that TWO would qualify or scrap it all and switch to an online school.  It's called a Virtual Academy- like a charter school but online.

We went ahead and registered and this was our first week.  It's been a struggle. TWO does not do well with change- a symptom of what we suspect is an Autism Spectrum Disorder.  But I can't get too discouraged after only a couple days.  Things should start to fall into place and level out.  The academy supplied us with brand new computer, printer and accessories, and supplemental curriculum should arrive today or tomorrow. I'm quite impressed.  The parent company, K12.com,  is in several states.  So when a PSC comes around transferring shouldn't be a problem . 

We'll see how things pan out.  Today was better than yesterday so I should count my blessings.
