The public school system can be tough on kids with ADD or ADHD. This is not always the case, of course – many public schools offer an excellent support system for special need students – but often there just aren’t enough resources to accommodate special needs within the system.
Many parents find that homeschooling is an excellent choice for children who have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. Many of these parents turn to homeschooling as the last resort after trying several other options and helplessly watching their children slip into a downward spiral of academic and social failure.
The good news: most of these families never look back. Homeschooling works beautifully for special needs children, because unlike traditional schooling, it is highly flexible and is centered on the individual child. Rather than expecting your child to fit into a fairly rigid mold, you have the option of creating a program specifically for your child.
WiloStar3D’s virtual reality approach to online homeschooling is particularly good with ADD and ADHD students because it keeps them engaged and interested. Having a homeschooling program that looks and acts like a video game where students get to attend classes in a 3D campus is a huge motivation for these children to keep learning and stay focused.
Special needs homeschooling is a challenge in itself – especially keeping your child engaged. Using 3D virtual worlds for education is a huge help because it deals with the typical boredom that ADHD students experience when doing repetitive tasks and it also enables them to completely avoid a traditional classroom setting, which is very hard on them.
