When it comes to homeschooling a child with special needs....
...superheroes think outside the box!
Join us ONLINE - December 6-10, 2016
The only FREE AND ONLINE conference in the world for homeschooling special needs!!
Parents who are homeschooling children with special needs are super heroes. They need to know more and do more than the average homeschool parent. They need more patience, more diligence, and more determination, to empower their children every day to reach beyond their limitations, to feel confident and strong - like a super hero. This is why parents who are homeschooling children with special needs have a FREE, online conference just for them. A super hero conference.
