Homeschooling Asperger's/ ASD

This list was originally at Yahoo Groups and named Homeschooling Aspies.

The change of the name from Asperger’s to Asperger's / Autism Spectrum Disorder, ASD, reflects the May 2013 change in the DSM-5. The DSM is the official diagnostic code book professionals use to evaluate patients.  In the DSM-5, Autism Spectrum Disorders (initials ASD) combined all disorders on the autism spectrum which in the past had sub-types such as Asperger’s Syndrome (initials AS), autism, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and others.


This is a list for Christian parents who homeschool (or are seriously considering homeschooling) their children who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (or suspect their child has). All are welcome to join, but there will be a Christian focus to many of the posts. We are here to encourage, support, and pray for one another as we do our best to teach our kids at home. We can share our struggles along with the methods and programs that have helped our children. Information shared on the list is not medical or legal advice. Many aspects of autism will be discussed but we will not discuss the validity of the existence of any neurological, psychiatric, or psychological diagnosis in general such as does autism really exist.

Upon applying for membership, you will receive an email from the list owner requesting an introduction. After your introduction is reviewed and once you are approved, the introduction will be sent to the list.
