College for Homeschool Students with Learning Differences: Laura Kazan
College is possible for students with learning differences. This session includes a discussion of different college types – LD colleges, colleges with LD program, colleges that provide supplementary support, test optional colleges, and general accommodations. We will also look at SAT, ACT, and high school testing accommodations and the college 504 plan. Lastly we will look at strategies that families can put in place during the middle school and high school years to prepare their student for a successful transition to college and independence.

Homeschooling High Needs and/or Anxious Children
The Anxious Mom's Guide to a Thriving Homeschool: Nadine Dyer
Homeschooling a child who has anxiety/panic disorders can be an exhausting, overwhelming, and frustrating job. If the homeschooling parent also has an anxiety disorder on top of it all? Well, this can create a situation that can be very hard to navigate. In this presentation, Nadine will discuss how she has managed her son’s anxiety and panic responses and their experiences together on this journey. She will also discuss how her OWN diagnosed anxiety disorder has affected how she homeschools her children. And how she has come to have a homeschool that’s not just surviving – but thriving!
