Special Needs Homeschooling

If you are looking for answers and resources as you homeschool a special needs student, this page will provide some needed information.

Home education provides a safe, nurturing atmosphere which has been proven to enhance learning. Many parents find that homeschooling offers numerous benefits for their child with special needs.
