What readers are saying about Diagnostic Tools to Help the Homeschooling Parent:
“This book opened my eyes to see learning through my son’s eyes. It made my children seem ‘normal’ and made me feel like a success, affirming and encouraging me in what I am doing.” —Teri
“I had each of my children do the learning styles test and was very surprised at some of the results… I just needed your book to get me thinking about what I have observed in my children. The responses to the questions described J. perfectly—and he knew it! It was really great for him to see he wasn’t ‘stupid’ and that he learns in a different way than someone else does. I knew he was an auditory learner, but your book helped me see he was also tactile… and I like the way your book separates tactile from kinesthetic! I really think Diagnostic Tools should be in the hands of every homeschool parent—especially those just starting out. Just by observing the first five years of your children along with how we as parents train them, the information in this book can help us in choosing curriculum that won’t frustrate us and our children but instead enable us to teach and enable our children to learn!” —Sharon
“More than a book, this is an educational resource that I will utilize throughout my homeschooling career!” —Joy
