Who says children who can't speak, can't learn? Autism parent, coach, and curriculum developer Heather Anderson has found a way to successfully homeschool her son who is nonspeaking with Autism.
Learn strategies that work from our insightful interview with Heather. For example, one of the first steps to homeschooling your nonverbal child with success is believing that they DO have the capacity to learn.
Heather Anderson is the creator of The Autism Oasis, providing education and support to families affected by nonverbal autism. Her new course, Nonverbal Autism Homeschool, focuses on reading, expressive language skills and exposing students to age-appropriate academics. She is also a mother to a 9-year-old nonverbal son named Tosh, and they live in Southern California.
