I’m Cindy…writer, creator, and outside-the-box mom. This site is dedicated to encouraging and empowering parents who homeschool their outside-the-box children.
Life as a Rinnagade began in June 2012, received a makeover and a slight name change (MY Life as a Rinnagade) in April 2014, and finally became Cindy Rinna.com in February 2017.
I’m a homeschool mom to four lovely and very outside-the-box children. Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD and dyslexia are all a part of our homeschool adventure.
Here’s the whole gang …
Yes, yes we need an updated family picture (that sweet baby is now three!) but it’s better than nothing 😉
You might be wondering…what exactly is outside-the-box?
Things that work for typical children just don’t seem to work for outside-the-box kids. They may struggle with academics. They may be supremely gifted in academics. They may be a little immature for their age and have trouble in social situations. They may have difficulties with emotions and relationships. Or they may have a formal diagnosis like autism, ADHD, dyslexia, SPD, ODD or OCD.
I understand what it feels like to be completely overwhelmed and I know what it feels like to go at this alone. There is not a lot of support out there for homeschooling families with outside-the-box children. My goal is to change that.
