Note 1. PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified). CHAPTER TWO The Road Home It was almost the end of sixth grade. Celia and John made the decision to remove James from the middle school and educate him at home. They looked into homeschool curriculums and learned about some excellent ones from home education guide books available in their local library and bookstores. One was chosen from an accredited, established correspondence school. Celia made an appointment with the superintendent of schools, went to his office armed with information about what James would be studying and completed paperwork for withdrawing him from the school system.

An unusual person, she and James seemed to sense each other’s differences. After talking with Celia and being directed to the right doctors, this friend received a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome. SOCIALIZATION 55 Many critics complain that the homeschooler will never learn to work in a group setting if the student is home all day. They wonder how the homeschooling parent can provide the experience of working toward a goal with a team of people. James and Abby had a wonderful and memorable experience through their teen art class which provided just such an opportunity.

They can block out whatever sunshine may come from upbeat people. James would make positive comments about his teachers from the elementary days, but he would never mention any teachers from the middle school. Unfortunately his latter experience had been so bitter that he lumped the good people in with the not-so-good. Although it may work well for some families, the shared schooling was a mistake for James and his parents. Celia and John felt that in trying to give the middle school experience a chance, they had stuck it out too long.
