Home / Such a huge difference in our son’s life!

 

I was really thrilled with your program (though our timing with taking 2 classes and a vacation was a lesson well learned!), and Thomas was really excited as the weeks passed. We have been homeschooling since September and he was a very reluctant learner in the past– and an even more reluctant writer. Our first writing assignments were met with extreme opposition, but the last assignments, though still hard for him, were amazing to watch as he figured out things like “maybe I should take notes while I watch this video”. He self-initiated re-watching videos figuring out, on his own, that he needed to hear information multiple times. He LOVED the videos for Castles, and once we got into the groove, he really enjoyed the builds, figuring out challenging Redstone tasks, and making friends on the GamED server. Thomas has autism and it is very hard for him to navigate social situations. Being able to interact with other kids on the server allows him to practice and to learn how to develop interactions through a shared interest. It was so great to watch peers jump in and ask what they could help with on assignments. The encouragement with notes from instructor grading really helped build his confidence. I just wanted to say thanks.  While I’m sure you hear from other folks that you have made a difference in their child’s life, you have made a huge difference in our son’s life. Thank you.
