  1. Lissa Studer

    Just looking for some support to start home school information on how to start the home school ideas for my child with cerebral palsy.

    • Hi Lissa – I think you will find that Special Needs Homeschooling is a good place to start. THSM doesn’t have much information for homeschooling children with special needs, but Special Needs Homeschooling has a long history of helping parents of special needs kids with homeschooling ideas and tips. Best wishes to you and your child.
