Kathy gives talks at conferences worldwide and online
Having a child with learning challenges can make it hard to attend a convention. So Kathy talks online and in person. Some past events include:
How to raise a book lover, even when they struggle to learn? On December 29, 2020, on The Homeschool Solutions Show, Janice Campbell interviewed me about homeschooling struggling learners and helping them develop a love of literature and language. Find this show wherever you download podcasts, including Apple Podcasts.
