Find Your Tribe

Being connected to fellow, in-the-trenches, homeschooling families is essential to keeping your perspective and gaining the ongoing support you need to continue running your SPED homeschool.

 

SPED Strong Tribes


SPED Strong Tribes are online communities re-imagined.

Created to go the opposite direction of social media groups and forums which focus on virtual resources and impersonal interactions,

these groups center around YOU

to create local and personalized networking hubs that not only connect you and your family to new local friends but also local resources.

We searched high and low for an app that didn’t toll data, and won’t block you for talking about things that are pertinent to your family’s health and rights.

Yes, we know what is involved in being the parent of a child with special needs and our tribes allow you to share in a secure and safe environment that follows HIPAA data privacy standards so you don’t have to worry about having your posts deleted because you share about the choices you make that are best for your family.

Local Homeschool Co-ops/Support Groups


Local homeschool co-ops and support groups exist in every state. The best way to find groups in your area is to connect with your state homeschool organization who will be able to give you their contact information.

Before taking the leap to join one of these groups it is best first to take into consideration whether or not the groups in your area have the ability to work with the specific needs of your child AND if your child is prepared to be part of an inclusion environment.

Thinking of Joining a Homeschool Co-op?


There are special considerations families of children with specialized learning needs must take into consideration before joining a co-op.

These videos below were created in cooperation with the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) to help families think through these considerations and to inform their future co-op members about learning differences.
