The Home Is the Ideal Environment for Special Needs Children

All children need to know they are loved. For children with special needs it is even more important. Homeschooling gives special-needs children teachers (the parents) who truly love them and intimately know their weaknesses and strengths. This gives parents a tremendous advantage in delivering an effective education program to their children.

Homeschooling also gives the parents an opportunity to teach what really matters. Having a handicap, as I have said, is a daily struggle. A handicapped child is constantly aware of his weakness and inability and this can often regularly lead to feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy. In homeschooling, parents can spend much time teaching their special-needs child that they were created in the image of God. They have worth and value because God loves them. Their struggles and difficulties have purpose in glorifying God and being conformed more into the image of His Son.

They can learn “not to lose heart. Though our outward man is decaying, our inward man is being renewed day by day. For this momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen but at the things which are seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (II Corinthians 4:16-18). If a child accepts Jesus as his Savior and believes He died on the cross for their sins and rose again, he knows he will be healed one day in heaven, if not before.

Weakness and disability remind us of our mortality and our great need for a Savior. The spiritual object lessons to be drawn from the our children’s handicap are endless and of eternal value to them and the whole family. I can truly say my multiple sclerosis and Amy’s limitations are blessings that are reaping tremendous spiritual growth. God is teaching us to walk by faith, not sight. (II Corinthians 5:7).
