The Home Ed Voices Podcast is a UK-based Home Education Podcast that profiles the lives of home ed families. You can find out more about the podcast here.
This week I’m talking to Lyndsay from @rainbows_and_wellies on Instagram. We talk about home educating an only child, and how home edding can provide a safe environment for an autistic child both to learn in a way that suits them, and get the degree of socialisation that feels comfortable to them (in comparison to the ‘coke bottle’ effect.) We also chat about finding your groove when you’re unexpectedly home educating, through community and time spent reflected on the things that are working.
