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. Their homeschooling was filled with therapy, doctor’s appointments, and behavioral issues that others just didn’t understand. Later the Laurie's discovered Heather and the children also have mitochondrial disease. She shares joyful encouragement for homeschooling through very tough times, always giving glory to God.
