Hi! I am new to this community, and while my 8 year old son has been diagnosed for 3-4 years already- I still feel so uneducated! I am struggling through trying to make school work well for him, but don't quite know what he needs or where to begin.
A new montessori charter is opening near us and I have been considering it. I've always been drawn to the movement and hands-on learning approach montessori provides, but am afraid about my son's struggle with self-direction. Does anyone have experience? I am afraid to make the leap as it is such a different approach than he's had thus far, and I would hate to do anything to make him further behind his peers if we end up returning to public school.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much
