Welcome to Autism Homeschool Success!
If you've chosen homeschooling for your child with autism, "Autism Homeschool Success" is here for you! You'll find all info about how to start homeschooling, where to find legal requirements for your state, curriculum reviews, helpful tips from other parents, and more! Look at the menu titled " I want info on..." for all of these resources.
I also work with children in their homes on social skills, communication/language, and math or science instruction, as well as facilitate free science-based social and vocational skills clubs in Rockwall, Texas. Go to the menu "Working with Dr. Caldwell" for more information. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Dr. Nicole Caldwell, and I've been teaching children and teens with autism for about 16 years. I hold a Master's degree and PhD in special education with an emphasis on teaching students with autism. I work with children in their homes and online (via video conferencing) to help them learn social skills, life skills, communication and language, and academics.
My background is in special education, Pivotal Response Treatment, and Montessori. I use these types of teaching methods in a way that is relaxed, natural, fun, play-based, and respectful of the wonderful uniqueness of children and teens on the spectrum.
How Can I Help Your Family?
I work with children and their families in Rockwall, Texas (and the surrounding cities) on:
Online Classes for Middle and High School Students (see the "Working with Dr. Caldwell" menu at at the top of this page for more information).
There are so many choices out there for homeschool curriculum! Here, you'll find detailed reviews and information about curriculum and autism books so that you can make informed decisions for your child.
I also create many of my own lesson plans and learning activities that blend academic subjects with the favorite interests and individual learning styles of the students I work with. I love to make learning motivating for your child!
