THE F.L.A.G. PROGRAM (Flexible Academic Goals)


(Homeschooling Differently Abled Kids from Grade 4 and up)

The GOOD & GREAT BRAINS SUPPORT is part of our advocacy on inclusivity as we acknowledge that ALL children deserve equal opportunities to have meaningful learning experiences. We deeply believe that children with exceptional needs are CAPABLE OF SUCCESS if they are given the APPROPRIATE SUPPORT AND RESOURCES based on research, consistent with the principles of equity and unique approaches in education.

It is true that raising or having children with exceptional needs can be challenging, and that the standard education system can present varied barriers to their learning and development.

The FLAG program is recommended to Grade 4-12 students who might need more flexibility in learning content and readiness. This program has the following features to support children with exceptional needs:

1.  Multiple Grade Level Access to the VOLT In LMS

To accommodate readiness and pacing, your child is provided access to multiple grade level content and lessons in the Learning Mangement System for academic support. We all know that generally, children's knowledge and competencies of subject areas are usually not on grade level. This is more apparent in kids with special needs. Multiple access to varied lessons with differentiated approaches can help provide the needed accommodations to meet children where they are. For example, if your child is traditionally classified as Grade 4, your child may need Grade 2 learning content for some subjects or perhaps, Grade 6 lessons in some areas. Being able to access varied levels of competence can help you create the best learning experience with your child. 

2. FLAG Neighborhood

This members-only support group is where parents or guardians can seek and receive advice from a child expert, behavioral therapist, registered nutritionist and dietician and parents with lived-in experiences of homeschooling children who belong in the spectrum. Advising is based on research and science as well as anecdotal sharing of similar situations especially as regards social-emotional management and nutrition
