"Homeschooling in an Intense Home"
HELP! How can I peacefully homeschool when I have children with special needs? How do I overcome the frustrations and the chaos? After over a decade of homeschooling my 5 children that have a variety of medical and learning special needs I know YOU CAN DO IT! Come and learn from Heather how you too can successfully accomplish peace in your home with a special needs child, even multiple children with special needs, and even if YOU have a disability yourself! Intensity doesn't have to equal chaos. Heather loves to answer your unique questions, so come prepared to ask them.
Heather Laurie and her husband Christopher have been homeschooling for over 13 years. She began the very popular website, Special Needs Homeschooling because 4 of her 5 children were diagnosed with autism. Later the Laurie's discovered Heather and all 5 of the children also have a genetic disease called mitochondrial disease. It is life shortening and progressive in nature, and Heather is often homeschooling her children from a hospital bed in her living room. Their homeschooling life is filled with therapy, doctor’s appointments, and behavioral issues that many just don’t understand. Her hope is to encourage and support special needs homeschooling families. She shares joyful encouragement for homeschooling through very tough times, always giving glory to God. Heather provides real support for special needs homeschooling families, whether they are just considering homeschooling or they have already been homeschooling and they just need new foundations or new direction or ideas.
