homeschool Parent Resources special needs

I just sent this email to the parents who have already signed up for Homeschooling & Special Needs and needed to share it with you.  This class will NOT be offered again in 2016! ----------------------------------
Hi Everyone! I can't wait for class to start in July! I've decided to limit this class to 12 people to make sure I am able to answer all of your questions and help you with resources specifically for your child. This means there are only 6 spaces left!  If you have friends who are thinking about this class, please encourage them to sign up soon. Here's the link to sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/homeschooling-special-needs-with-catherine-whitcher-med-tickets-25717794616 Remember, everything in class will be recorded, so if you can't show up when I am teaching LIVE in the group, you won't miss a thing! Hope you are having a great summer! I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning about your rockstar kids! With Hope & Determination, Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed

Homeschooling& Special Needs Are you considering homeschooling your child with special needs? Maybe you've just started homeschooling and you want to make sure you're doing it "right"?  During the ENTIRE month of July I'm going to lead you through homeschooling questions, concerns, and give you tools you can use for your child's education!
  • If you are still deciding if homeschooling is right for you, this class is for you.

  • If you know homeschooling is right for you, but you're nervous, this class is for you.

  • If you are early on in your homeschooling journey and want the help of a certified special education teacher, this is for you.

I've been a special needs advocate for 20 years, but my career started as a special education teacher.  I'm also a mom of two daughters (ages 12&13).  I pulled my daughters out of public school, homeschooled, and now they are back into public school during the day, but it's a completely different experience! I knew when I was choosing to homeschool that it would be a family decision if it was a long or short term solution - I'll share much more with you on how I and other families make those decisions. I'm a single mom and I homeschooled.  If you truly want homeschool to work, there are no excuses that can stand in your way and I'll help you with the challenges! My brother has Down syndrome, which means I know what your house and family life look like... I grew up in a special needs family and I know it won't all be sunshine and roses!  We are going to talk honestly about the pitfalls of homeschooling. I still homeschool my children even though they go to public school during the day... wait, what?! YEP! I'll show you how, if even you choose to use the public school for some things, you can still homeschool your child. This online class is a full 31 days long - you will have the opportunity for you to ask questions and get the resources you need to make the decision to homeschool (or not) and be confident in your choices for homeschooling if you are already in the process.

Just some of the topics that will be included:

  • Curriculum: I'll help you find what's right for your child!

  • Progress Monitoring

  • How do you teach your child subjects you're not confident in?

  • What if your child needs to go back to public school?

  • What about graduation, jobs and college?

  • What about socialization!!!

  • How to get ongoing support so you're not alone and making all decisions on your own

Many of you have reached out saying to me... I want to homeschool, but I don't know how to do it... THIS is the foundational class that shows you how to do it, what you need and will help you make the decision if homeschool is right for you going forward.

 As a certified teacher, experienced homeschool mom, and current IEP advocate, I can't wait to show you what tools and skills you need to make sure your child's education is successful!

During this online class we will have LIVE video interaction, LIVE Q&A, AND.... everything will be recorded so you can watch it anytime during the month of July.  Don't worry if you miss a day of class everything will take place in a private group on facebook and all materials will be accessible 24/7! I can't wait to see you in class!
