If you are homeschooling a child with special needs, you need to follow your state’s homeschool regulations. There are no additional requirements for homeschooling children with special needs in Alaska.

Alaska has a private school provision contained in Alaska Statutes Sections 14.45.100 - 14.45.130. Families operating their home education program under the private school statute should be eligible to receive IDEA funds for special education services.

Note: As you decide what kind of special needs services and therapy best meet your child’s needs, we want you to know that HSLDA Compassion Curriculum Grants are available to help with diagnostic services, therapy, curriculum, or other educational materials.
