Welcome to the How She Does It series: Homeschooling Moms of Special Needs Kids Speak Out. To read more stories from other homeschooling moms, visit our How She Does It installment on our Special Needs page.
Today’s post is from Sharla, who blogs over at The Chaos and the Clutter. Sharla is the mom of 7 wonderfully unique children. Here is how she describes her family:
Two of our children were blessed by birth and the other five through adoption. Four have special needs with many of them having multiple diagnoses. These include four kids with SPD (sensory processing disorder), two with FASD, a lung disease, Aspergers, speech delays, severe cognitive delays, hearing loss, subtractive bilangualism (fancy way of saying he lost his first language before learning his second), RAD (reactive attachment disorder), PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), and anxiety disorder. There is obviously never a dull moment in our household!
