About the author:
Kathy Kuhl did not set out to homeschool her son. Getting him and his homework out the door on school mornings was hard enough. Despite his intelligence and his excellent school, however, he struggled with learning and attention problems. She began homeschooling him in fourth grade, and continued through twelfth grade. He worked hard, made great strides in reading and math, developed interests in writing and backpacking, and became an Eagle Scout.
Since his graduation, Kathy began working on this book, a comprehensive introduction to homeschooling struggling learners. To prepare for this book, she interviewed 64 homeschooling parents with children with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and other difficulties.
Kathy now writes, consults, and speaks, helping parents teach their children at home. She speaks to homeschool conventions, patient advocacy organizations (including national conferences of CHADD, LDA, and ASA) and other groups. Still active in her local homeschool community, she also teaches math and English to homeschooled teens and leads a support group for homeschoolers with children with special needs.
Kathy began working with exceptional children when she was fourteen. A graduate of William and Mary, she earned teaching certificates in English and mathematics and taught in public junior high school. She has also enjoyed teaching preschoolers and adults.
She lives in Northern Virginia with her family and enjoys hiking and reading. You may contact her though info@LearnDifferently.com Her website is http://www.learndifferently.com/
