From the Author:

Who Will Benefit From This Book?

Parents of special-needs children, whether the needs are mild and common, or more severe and complex -- Some may not have heard of "classical education," but they want the best possible education for their children. Others may be well-versed in classical education, but they wonder whether their special-needs children can benefit. This book was written especially for you.

Anyone interested in a straightforward explanation of classical Christian education -- Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child offers an accessible description of classical education and its implementation.

Teachers of special-needs students -- Whether in a tutorial setting, classroom, cottage school setting, home school, teachers of special-needs students will find encouragement, strategies, and resources in this book.

Families who wish to homeschool their special-needs children -- Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child offers support and recommendations from toddlerhood through high school.

Parents who wonder whether a specific child might need further assessment -- You will receive suggestions on informal and formal evaluations with screenings, charts, and tips for navigating the diagnostic process.

Classical school headmasters and teachers who know they are not meeting the educational needs of some struggling students -- Find support in these pages for bringing classical education to special-needs students, rather than ask such students not to return. Schools may wish to better integrate these students into classical classrooms or design a "school within a school" in which smaller classrooms, perhaps K-3 and 4-8, provide a much slower pace overall. With improved strategies and methods, struggling students can continue to receive a classical education.

Anyone already engaged in the excellent pursuit of bringing classical Christian education to any child -- This book is intended to encourage, inspire, and assist classroom teachers, homeschoolers, university professors, classical publishers, headmasters, and more.

From the Back Cover:

Cheryl Swope has woven together a tapestry of personal narrative; an apologetic for classical Christian education and home schooling; and resources for anyone wishing to pursue the trivium with the simplest and most challenged children....She carefully articulates what is lacking in progressive education and asserts an education that pursues what is the true, the good, and the beautiful. Her book is a timely contribution to home education and formal education with children who have special learning needs.
-Rev. Stephen Kieser, President CCLE, The Consortium for Classical and Lutheran Education
Cheryl Swope's book, Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child, is a well-written, well-researched resource which reminds readers that all children deserve a valuable education. This wonderful work instructs parents and educators, so children who receive a classical education can be surrounded with daily opportunities to learn, even as they remember that the greatest gift they can give is to serve those around them.
-Kathryn Green, President, Southeast Missouri NAMI - National Alliance for the Mentally Ill
