Does Homeschooling Perpetuate Classism and Ableism in the School System? In our last episode (listen here), I talked about my neurodiverse family’s experience homeschooling during the pandemic and why it’s working for us.
But I have complex feelings about homeschooling, so today I’m discussing my concerns, why I think disabled kids should be integrated into conventional classrooms, and why pulling disabled students out of conventional schools might set disability rights back.

Homeschooling Autistic and ADHD Kids: Our Story Welcome back! You may have noticed that we have spent the past couple of months discussing education for neurodiverse kids. We've talked to special education tutors, literacy experts, and parents about how public schooling has affected their autistic and ADHD children, and some of the issues or challenges they've had receiving needed supports for their kids. And, over the course of this podcast, we've talked to a couple of parents who have chosen to pull their children from public schooling and to homeschool instead. Today I’m here to tell you about my neurodiverse family’s experience homeschooling during the pandemic, why it’s working for us, and whether homeschooling is a good idea for families with disabled kids, or not!
