The Academic Link Homeschool Center is ‘the answer to many parents’ prayers’ because it’s a center that customizes the academic curriculum to the child instead of making the child fit into one standard curriculum.  This type of support is very unique because it takes a lot of time and understanding of the child’s needs.  Mrs. Cindy Knoess, the Academic Link Homeschool Center’s founder, is a certified teacher and NILD therapist.  She takes the time to genuinely understand each child’s needs as she guides parents in selecting the appropriate school curriculum.  In addition, Mrs. Knoess offers the NILD therapy for children with learning disabilities.  This is a supplemental therapy that helps children with dysgraphia, dyslexia, and information processing problems.  Not every child is the right fit for The Academic Link because they are not equipped to teach children with severe behavioral difficulties.  The children at The Academic Link are well behaved, outgoing, and sociable young kids that thrive in a smaller educational environment.
