About This Workshop

Part of raising a child with exceptionalities and special needs means we often interact on a much more frequent and intimate level with doctors and therapists. What happens when your team doesn’t understand or even support homeschooling? How can you begin to educate them about your decision? When is it time to change professionals? Unfortunately, there is a cultural expectation in the medical field that when a child is diagnosed with Autism, Adhd, Dyslexia and other learning differences, experts must be the ones to help them learn. In this session, Shawna Wingert, former special education teacher and mom of two boys with special needs, shares her decade of experience in dealing with less than supportive doctors and therapists as she homeschools her children.
