Homeschooling a child with special needs can be overwhelming. You’ve tried to choose the right level for your child but you are both still frustrated.
You know that the Charlotte Mason method is the best way to honor your child’s personhood, but you’re not sure how to implement the details.
- You want a simple, easy plan to help you figure it all out
- You want to meet your child where he is and also help him advance in all areas
- You want your child to thrive, not merely get by
- You want peace and joy in your homeschool and in your home
We have combined our knowledge and expertise to create the Developmental Form Guide – the only Guide that takes a developmental approach to the Charlotte Mason method.
The combination of Rachel’s CM Your Way Form Guides and the Special Needs Developmental Guide is everything you need to find that perfect fit for your child.
We want to keep the cost affordable for special needs families.
The Special Needs Guide is an ADD-ON to the CM Your Way Form Guides. The two Guides work hand-in-hand to give you a complete picture of the Charlotte Mason method from a developmental approach.
We are committed to keeping prices affordable for all families. Offering the Special Needs Guide as an add-on keeps the cost affordable.
What moms just like you have said:
Here’s what Amanda had to say about using the CM Your Way Form Guide:
“All of my planning issues have now been solved with this guide! I was beside myself until now! I have clarity now of how to make a CM school fit my family! Thank you 100 times over!”
And here’s what Agnelli had to say about using the Developmental Guide:
“Yes! 5 Stars !!! It’s a Blessing!!! Do you remember the day that you got the diagnosis of your child’s evaluation. All you could hear were medical terms describing your child, when you knew, in your heart, that’s was not your child. On top of that, the question about how are you going to help your child thrive through life comes like an arrow. How his education will fit with all of this?
Well this Guide is the answer for you! It’s where you meet your child, on his developmental needs, so you can approach them “Your Way” and provide the support he needs. Not only on his education through CM, but within all his educational atmosphere. You know your child’s uniqueness and beautiful skills, this guide will serve you as a reference every step of your child’s growth and learning journey. If you haven’t noticed, I have just described you, how I felt the day I got my child’s diagnosis, and how I felt as soon I started reading and applying this guide.”
We’ve been where you are.

- An overview of developmental skills related to each subject
- Interpretation of the Charlotte Mason method from a developmental perspective
- Examples and resources to help you re-envision your CM education the way Charlotte intended it to be:

Amy also explains how those skills line-up with what Charlotte expected of her students to accomplish in each Form.
Imagine finally feeling successful as a special needs homeschool parent because you now know where your child is, what he needs, and how to help him move forward with the least resistance!
Like Charlotte Mason, we believe all children are born persons and worthy of respect; to see a child as a person, not as a diagnosis.

“I’m new to Charlotte Mason and was feeling stressed and overwhelmed by where to start. I found Rachel’s Form Guide and after previewing it, I felt so relieved! It simplified everything I was trying to navigate on the other sites. I did not hesitate to purchase the full Form Guide. Instead of the overwhelming frustration and confusion I had, I found myself getting really excited about planning our year! I followed the three steps and was able to easily choose our books and make a schedule! Thank you so much!” – Brittany
“Amy truly is a blessing. She was very thorough in the process of finding where my child was. Because of her, our homeschool is going much better. I’d definitely recommend her. As a special needs parent, I felt very alone and not sure I was homeschooling him to the best of my ability. Amy gave me great ideas and it’s going better than ever now.” – Laurel
