 Home Educating Our Autistic Spectrum Children:
Paths are Made by Walking
Ed. Michelle Laffette and Kitt Cowlishaw

Free Range Education.........

  ......... is a book for parents: for those who are contemplating home education, those whose families are getting started and those who are just plain interested in this fast-growing form of education.

Featuring the stories of more than twenty home educating families, it certainly answers the question: " But what do you do all day?"   In fact it answers a whole lot of other questions too, like: "How do your children socialise?"  "How do they do exams?"

An extensive chapter on the law relating to home education, written by an experienced solicitor, will answer another frequently asked question: "Is it legal?"

'Free Range Education' offers a glimpse of the diversity and energy within home education and an honest account of the joys and difficulties along the way. It is full of ideas, experience and practical suggestions, all laced with humour, cartoons and words of wisdom from writers and thinkers across the centuries. 

It is also a celebration of home education, providing a unique view of how far this movement has come in the past few decades.
