Homeschooling families often require different support than traditional schooling families. For that reason, we are launching support groups tailored to you and your specific needs. Whether you have chosen to homeschool because you hold alternative educational and parenting philosophies, are a do-it-yourselfer, or out of pure necessity because your child does not fit into the mainstream box, we are here for you.
Following the tried and true SENG Model, Kasi Peters and Adriane Ransom will be facilitating a 6-week support group specifically designed to support novice, experienced, and somewhere-in-between homeschooling families raising gifted children.
Our online facilitated groups will meet weekly for 1 1⁄2 hours over the course of 6 weeks. Afterwards, you will receive continued support from our online community of like-minded families, as well an invitation to participate in our monthly “book-club” style guided discussion meetings.
