"Super Strategies for Homeschooling Children With Special Needs"
This presentation was an interview-based question and answer strategy session from our 2011 Super Summit. Heather Laurie was actually a substitute for another speaker and she jumped in with both feet and no preparation - but we feel it was probably one of the BEST special needs sessions we have ever held! She shared incredible strategies which our members have been using and commenting on for many years.

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.
