Lay Advocacy: Homeschooling for Students with Disabilities

Deciding to homeschool is a big decision for any family. For families of students with disabilities, you may be wondering whether this affects the services they receive through your school district. Join us to discuss the basic questions to consider, how to notify your school, and what special education services are available for homeschooled students. 

  • Understand the basic steps when notifying your school about your intent to homeschool
  • Gain an understanding on how homeschooling will impact your child’s special education supports and services
  • Learn strategies to understand this process and questions you can ask
