HSLDA understands that private therapeutic services can often add up quickly. And we know that you are committed to providing the best education possible for your child no matter the cost.

That’s why HSLDA offers Compassion Grants to homeschooling families in need of private services. You can learn more and apply for a grant here.

Other local, state, and national organizations also offer assistance to families needing help with private services for their children. If you’re an HSLDA member, feel free to reach out to our Special Needs Consultants for more information.

Membership dues for a family for one year are $130. One membership covers your entire family: parents/guardians and all children of whom you are the parent or legal guardian. There are no additional charges when you consult with our attorneys or educational consultants—it’s all included in your $130 dues. For special discounts and payment options that could bring your cost down to as little as 30¢ a day, see What are my membership options?

If your family needs immediate assistance, we suggest that you expedite your application with the $40 rush fee.

Rushed applications will be reviewed within 2 business days. Because processing a rushed application requires the immediate diversion of HSLDA resources, the $40 fee is nonrefundable. Approval is not guaranteed.

Be sure to include details about your situation on your application and be prepared to submit copies of relevant documentation (letters, court documents, etc.).
