We have been homeschooling from 2010 to 2019! It has been quite an adventure! At the time, we were practically alone. We were “ pioneers''. Oh, how we had to endure the dirty looks! But we persevered despite everything!
AQED, through its communications and advice, played a great, positive role for us! A kind of stable and reassuring lighthouse in the storm of our decision to home school! It must be said that this was my spouse’s choice! I embarked on the adventure by default and backwards, at first. But then, I embraced the adventure and got very involved. And I had fun!
I can’t thank AQED and its driving forces enough for all this shared work! THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH!!!
It has been an amazing privilege to have been able to watch our children grow and spend time with them! The true essence!
Home-based learning brought our family, primarily, an infinite number of possibilities ranging from adapting to the child’s strengths, weaknesses, interests, projects, progress to his or her needs and so on. Furthermore, the opportunity to offer our child a diverse range of enriching situations such as socialization, activities, different educational approaches, outings for discoveries, projects, etc. The opportunity to learn every day through fun. My daughter would like to add that it made her discover more and allowed her to do more activities

Before homeschooling, our family life was difficult and stressful. We needed to find the right rhythm to re-ignite in our children the passion for learning. They had passion, but few opportunities. We had projects, but again so little time to complete them. Now, life is dynamic, enriching, passionate and there are opportunities.
Homeschooling makes it possible to attain further knowledge without having to wait to change grades!
Additionally, it has given me the chance to teach my autistic son concepts differently and more clearly than taught in school. Knowing that a lot of individuals on the autism spectrum don’t obtain a high school diploma, I think he has a greater chance of achieving this by learning from home.
