An invaluable resource for all parents who are educating their children at home, or considering it

'Home-educators want to provide a high quality learning experience for their children and this handbook is an excellent resource for making this aspiration a reality' - Dr Adam Boddison, Chief Executive of National Association of Special Educational Needs

If you are thinking of home educating your child, your initial surprise may be at how easy it is to turn intention into reality. Once you have deregistered your child, you are largely left to get on with delivering education from home, as you see best.

This book is full of practical guidance for parents, based on the authors' long experience of working with children and young people; their parents, teachers and schools. It will help you plan what is taught, as well as when and how. The authors not only consider how to benefit from the opportunities home education provides, but also suggest creative ways to fill the potential gaps that might arise from not being part of the traditional school system.

The Home Education Handbook covers everything from the socialisation of home-educated children to advice on supporting the motivation and resilience of all involved. This is a book that every parent who is considering home education or flexi-schooling, or is simply keen to ensure that their child gets the best education possible, needs to read.
