Abstract

Homeschooling is a controversial topic in the world of education, especially with special needs students. There are advantages and disadvantages to homeschooling based on teaching methods. Therefore, there are multiple ideas about the approaches that should be taken in teaching these individuals to provide them with a fair education. Parents who are becoming educators for their special needs children can apply the challenging thoughts of philosophers to their instruction time in order to create successful educational practices. Therefore, special needs children are benefiting from practices being implemented during home school that will only create positive outcomes for promoting a quality education. One approach to applying philosophical works to homeschooling is the usage of ideas by Nel Noddings. Nel Noddings is an American philosopher whose educational works can contribute to successful educational practices that are suited for each child. These practices include helping special needs children learn through the concept of networking, creating an enriching environment, and exhibiting the importance of customization. Therefore, homeschooling special needs children can be beneficial with the correct educational practices that can create a positive learning environment, which enhances these children’s lives through providing a just education.
