Homeschooling vs Homebound vs Remote Learning. Three very different terms and decisions.

 

2:04

If you choose homeschooling, anything your district provides for you is a bonus

 

2:52

Homebound is a placement listed on the IEP that distinguishes your child will receive their IEP services at home. Commonly used for children who have long term illnesses.

 

4:12

Homebound services are a reduced number of services. Example: State of IL only requires 5 hours per week for a certified teacher to work with a child. You must negotiate for more, if appropriate.

 

5:04

Remote Learning - a plan put in place due to the current pandemic.

 

6:16

Often homebound services are reduced, but because it is 1:1 services vs one to many, much more can be accomplished.

 

7:11

When homeschooling you get to control all of the curriculum and goals. Your state homeschooling laws govern your child’s education.

 

8:28

Homebound plans are still very much a team decision for what a child is working on in all areas.

 

9:08

We need to get creative in remote learning plans and adjust curriculum, activities and data collection, as needed.

 

10:48
Just because you make a choice on homeschooling, homebound or remote learning now, doesn’t mean that you have to stick with it long term.

 

12:13

You can make the best decision possible at this time and there’s no shame in changing your mind.
