Using the Charlotte Mason Method
What Form or grade should your child be in? How do you know where to place your child within the Charlotte Mason method? What are the steps your child needs to take next?

Homeschooling Step by Step
Amy created the Special Needs Developmental Guide to help you pinpoint where your child is on the “developmental ladder” and help you know what the correct steps are to help him get to the next rung on that ladder.
In this video, I interviewed Amy about the Developemntal Guide and how it will help you homeschool more successfully and with less frustration.
“It’s very much a building approach, everything builds upon the other. It’s about taking the next step developmentally.”
