There are numerous reasons for deciding to homeschool your children. One of the rising and heartfelt reasons I have seen is that of parents seeking to provide a ‘better’ schooling experience for their child(ren) with special needs or learning differences.
For the past six years I have actively worked to ensure the homeschooling community is a communal home for families of children with special needs.
With United Community of Homeschooling Unlimited (UCHU) the services I provide to ensure that you feel equipped, apart and knowledgeable while home educating your special needs student is by providing:
- A special needs liasion with decades of expertise in homeschooling special needs, Susan Blackwell.
- A Facebook page for families homeschooling in the Upstate with Special Needs
- A yearly virtual mastermind meeting specifically focused for families homeschooling with special needs children
- Certificate of Attendance once your student completes their homeschool studies
At one point I operated and directed a homeschool co-op that purposefully comprised of about 40% students with special needs on some level. It was very rewarding. The co-op was a STEAM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Arts. Mathematics.) focus. These ares of study does not require the student to be limited due to their special needs.
Having a son who is on the spectrum I know the challenges and frustrations and joys of homeschooling a child with learning challenges. These challenges can be lovingly overcome and found to be assets to the journey.
Welcome to the journey of homeschooling your special needs/learning different student(s).
Peace and Blessings.
Serving You and Yours.
