Diagnosis and professional help
The Home School Legal Defense Association has an excellent special needs department with articles, screening tools, and recommendations here. They also provide advice to their members.
SPED Homeschool is another nonprofit offering good resources and encouragement through podcasts, webinars, online meetings, and more. (Disclosure: at this writing, I am on the SPED Homeschool advisory board, an unpaid position.)
