Kudos to Forest Trail
I live in the British Virgin Islands where special education is limited. As I did not think my son, who was a high functioning child on the spectrum was being given the opportunity to learn the way and the things I realised he could be taught. After much prayer, I got up and surfed the web for an online high school. I found Forest Trail and I called them up. I enrolled my son for the 6th Grade and the work came under the normal program. After realising that it would not work, Forest Trail introduced me to Prescriptive Learning and we switched to that. This worked beautifully and Josh completed the 6th Grade. He is now in the 7th Grade, and although it has its challenges, he is getting through. The support team at Forest Trail is remarkable. The message system with the teachers is beyond anything I could have dreamt. They call every now and again to see how the child is doing. I recently approached them about some modifications that may be needed for the 8th Grade when the time comes, and they are already working to sort it out. The High School in the BVI is a few steps away from me, but I know that the level of education that my son gets at FTA,cannot be compared with what would have been afforded to him locally. I highly recommend this school to any parent who is seeking an excellent education for their child. However, as a parent homeschooling, you must be committed to dedicating your personal time to ensure your child is personally supervised by you or seek the help of someone qualified to sit and work with your child. He/she should not be left on their own to teach themselves. Also ensure that your child's social needs are met by enrolling him/her in extra curricular activities. My son has sailing lessons, kung fu and music (violin, guitar and piano) and he is active in the youth group of our church.
