November 9 - Special Needs

 7-9 PM in the library meeting room

 Approximately 25% of homeschooling families have at least one student with special needs. These special needs can be physical, emotional or educational. Dealing with these unique needs means creating a unique supportive learning environment. We are here to help! A panel of local experts in various fields will help you better understand how best to meet your child's unique needs, get services for your child and succeed beyond your wildest dreams.  On our panel you will be able to meet:
