Martha Kennedy Hartnett is the mother of a child with Asperger’s Syndrome who made the courageous choice to homeschool. Emerging from the author’s personal experience, this book is a step by step account of successful home education.

Choosing Home will take you into the homes of Asperger families as they journey from survival of the playground bully to making it work at home. Hartnett embraces those pertinent questions raised by parents: Will I be limiting my child’s emotional and social development? How will I know if my teaching is good enough? What if I can’t cope? These questions and many more are answered in this touching and insightful narrative.

This is a book of hope and encouragement to all parents with an interest in homeschooling.



What is Asperger’s Syndrome? Daniel W. Rosenn and Barbara H. Rosenn. Foreword, Stephen Shore. Preface. 1. Struggling. 2. The Road Home. 3. Moving Forward. 4. Socialization. 5. Making It All Work. 6. Practical Tips. 7. Burnout. 8. Stories and Reflections. Resources.



This is a very encouraging book for anyone who doubts their ability to home educate a child with Asperger’s, or who may be fearful about not being able to cope with the demands from their child 24/7. It is well worth sifting through for the wise insights and practical tips. In addition the author promotes the idea of self care for the weary parent. A nicely balanced, positive book.
