I am starting homeschooling for both my sons. Since I have been looking at several sites for the curriculum that is best for him I was told that I do not have to go by the common core now that they are not in a public school. I was wondering if it is true cause my son has a reading issue, and it affects his classwork? I am working with him to help him understand what he is reading. I really would like to make a curriculum that helps him and not force him to stress out from not understanding. He has adhd, ocd, odd and bipolar. That is why I started homeschooling them both. Is there any programs that helps with issues like his around the area?
You are correct; you are not required to follow the Common Core or other standards, but to provide a substantially equivalent education. I’d encourage you to join the Facebook communities Homeschool Delaware or Delaware Secular Homeschoolers to tap into ideas from a large community of other homeschool parents. There are also community resources available such as Huntington Learning Center and Orton-Gillingham that you might wish to check out.
