Kathy Kuhl equips and encourages parents of children with learning challenges. She speaks to parents internationally, combining a wealth of information and insight with practical suggestions, humor, and personal experience. After homeschooling a bright, dyslexic, creative, and highly distractible son for grades 4–12, she interviewed 64 families homeschooling students with learning difficulties to write Homeschooling Your Struggling Learner. This handbook helps anyone supporting teens and children with challenges—including learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and giftedness—and others who “learn differently,” whether diagnosed or not.
Kathy founded LearnDifferently.com to help parents help their children. She gives private consultations by phone and Skype internationally. Whether your child struggles or has given up, now is a great time to homeschool an exceptional child. Homeschooling lets us customize our children’s education, not only to their needs, but also to their strengths and gifts.
Kathy’s latest books are Staying Sane as You Homeschool and Encouraging Your Child. Both are short, practical guides to help parents, children, and teens thrive and enjoy their time together.
Kathy graduated from William and Mary with teaching certificates in secondary mathematics and English. She has taught secondary math and English in public school and in homeschool groups, and helps lead two homeschool groups in Northern Virginia, where she enjoys reading and hiking with her husband. They wed in 1981 and have two grown children and a granddaughter.
