TwHP has created a variety of products and activities that help teachers bring historic places into the classroom. Includes a series of lesson plans; guidance on using places to teach; information encouraging educators, historians, preservationists, site interpreters, and others to work together effectively; and professional development publications and training courses.

Advantages of Homeschooling a Child with Autism
Laurel Joss
Many parents of children with autism have considered homeschooling at one time or another. Educating a child with autism can be a challenge, and many schools are not up to the task. Even schools with highly qualified teachers and excellent programming cannot give a child the one-on-one personal attention that a devoted parent can offer. Sadly, most schools are adequate, at best, and many parents wonder how their child will do from year to year. There are several advantages to homeschooling a child with autism. The biggest advantage is that a parent can tailor the curriculum to fit their child’s learning style, personality, and interests. In a school situation, the students are required to adapt to the teaching style and materials that are offered. Parents who homeschool can adapt the material to suit their child’s needs instead.
