“What are Special Needs and does my Child Have Them?” Webinar (Recorded August 6, 2020)
Are you frustrated with your child’s progress – but aren’t sure if it is really a learning problem? Learning Specialist and veteran homeschooler, Sharon Hensley, will guide you through the process of thinking about “special needs” in a homeschool setting. What exactly are special needs? How do you know if your child has a special learning need or is just lazy? Is it important to have a diagnosis? How do you get services and testing? What if you don’t want a label – can you still make accommodations for your child’s learning differences? Are attention problems a “special need”?
“Keeping Your Records” Webinar (Recorded August 18, 2020)
As a private home educator, what records do I need to keep? What are some ways I can store these records? How long do I keep them? Are there any optional records I should keep? Get answers to these questions and more as we share what records are required, what records are optional, and some ideas for keeping these records.
“PSA Filing Party” Webinar (Recorded October 6, 2020)
Filing a Private School Affidavit isn’t hard, but it can seem daunting if you are unfamiliar with the process. Join Rebecca Kocsis and Katie Julius as they walk you through the process step-by-step. At the conclusion of this webinar, you will have successfully completed your filing for the 2020-2021 academic school year. Not sure if you need to file a PSA?
