Kathy has spoken at conferences worldwide and online
Having a child with learning challenges can make it hard to attend a convention. So Kathy speaks online and in person. Recent online events include:
- On May 2, 2017, Kathy gave a webinar on “Homeschooling Children with Special Needs” for PEATC of Virginia. (Our apologies for the sound quality.) She explained how to customize curriculum, schedule, and plan for your child’s unique strengths, weaknesses, and interests. Kathy gave suggestions on finding materials and getting support, how to decide whether students need special testing to identify learning problems, and about resources to help you and mistakes to avoid. This webinar can help you, whether you are looking only for after-school and summer enrichment, are considering homeschooling, or have been homeschooling for years.
