Whatever the scale, teaching a struggling learner adds a whole new dimension to the already challenging job of homeschooling. But thankfully, you don’t have to do it alone. Across the state and nation, specialists and families like yours have put together organizations, written books, and started therapy programs. Where can you find these resources?
CHEC is dedicated to helping our families homeschool with excellence. That’s why we’ve put together a substantial list of therapy providers, books, organizations, and more to help families dealing with reading struggles to Downs to everything in between.
We’re grateful for homeschool parents who volunteer their time to help us keep this listing updated! If you have a suggestion for a resource for homeschool parents, please let us know.
