6. Helping You Homeschool Your Special Needs Student

Homeschooling may be the best way to meet the unique needs of children
who learn differently. After all, the very nature of home education is
that each child gets an "individualized education plan." HSLDA's
special needs consultants are committed to assisting parents in this
endeavor, and we offer encouragement, teaching tips, articles and
newsletters.
