6. Caring for Families with Special Needs

Homeschooling may be the best way to meet the special needs of
children who learn differently. After all, the very nature of home
education is that each child gets an "individualized education plan."
The HSLDA struggling learner-special needs department exists to equip
and encourage families in this endeavor.
