Who Is This Webinar For?

  • I have a toddler, an 8-year-old, and a 15-year-old. Can homeschooling really work for us?
  • “I’d love to homeschool, but I still have to work during the day. Is there a way to make homeschooling fit our family?”
  • My kids aren’t on grade level and have IEP’s. How do I teach them—and how will they get speech and occupational therapy?”
Love the idea of homeschooling, but feel like “I could never homeschool because . . . ”? We invite you to bring your questions and explore the possibilities in this warm and welcoming conversation with our panel of three homeschooling parents.

HSLDA High School and Special Need Consultant Rochelle Matthews-Somerville (homeschool mom to six) and HSLDA Staff Attorney Tj Schmidt (homeschool grad and now homeschool dad to seven) join our moderator, Sandra Kim (a former-public-school-turned-new-homeschool-and-full-time-working mom to three). They’ll come alongside you with clear answers, reassuring insights, creative how-to’s, and honest, real stories of what worked and what didn’t.

Some Topics We’ll Discuss

  • As a one-income family, can I even afford curriculum and supplies for my kids?
  • I am dyslexic/sick/disabled/[insert your unique circumstance here]. How could I teach my child and make this fit our family? 
  • How do we cover advanced subjects like chemistry, trigonometry, foreign languages, or creative writing?
  • My extended family does not support me homeschooling my children. Help!
  • What about socialization? Sports? Community for me and the kids?
