In Lake Wobegon all the children are above average, but in the real world some kids struggle.  What is a parent to do?
I have a son with fairly significant learning disabilities.  He is dues to begin high school this fall.  He is on a sixth grade level in math...so we keep going...do I give him high school level credit for the math we do next year?  His writing looks like a second grader's ~ do we continue on and give high school credit for his English work?  He is 15 and says he really wants to go to college and I want to prepare him to do so, which means an intelligible but honest transcript.  thanks!

Hi Carol,

Yes, he can be in high school and yes, you can give him high school credit. I have an article about College for Struggling Learners that you may enjoy here.

Your question about high school credits is answered more fully in my free one-hour homeschool training webinar.

I hope this gives you the answer you need!
