Special Needs Homeschooling - Tips and Helps for Success

Do you have a child who is gifted or twice exceptional?  Or a child or teen with sensory issues,  Sensory Processing Disorder or ADHD?  Or other learning issues?

Our daughter struggled with both of these things in her early years, and recently graduated from college with her homeschool transcript.

Be encouraged.  Homeschooling can be such a great way to go for all of our kids and teens. 

This page is all about our own homeschooling journey, and special learning issues such as SPD, ADHD, and tips for struggling readers.
