For families living in Washington state who are homeschooling special needs children, or are considering it. We try to keep our focus on true independent homeschooling under Washington's Home-Based Instruction law.
We invite parents to join us in sharing resources and just networking with each other. Once you join, you'll be able to access a reading list, resources and useful internet links in the files section.
There is no cost or membership fee to belong to this e-mail discussion group. When requesting to join us, you will be prompted to give a short statement about why you want to join. If that is left blank, your membership will not be approved.
Our list is not open to solicitation or promotion of businesses, products or services. If you have something to offer that could be construed as promotional in nature, please e-mail the list owner privately for permission. Joining our list to harvest e-mail addresses for spamming purposes will NOT be tolerated. We reserve the right to remove members who violate these policies.
This is a large group, and the volume of messages can be high at times. If that bothers you, edit your message delivery options to let you read messages on the website, instead of them coming to your inbox.
Please join us on FACEBOOK, too! Search for SpecialHSofWA (just like that, no spaces) for our "fan" page, and use this link for our private discussion group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SpecialHSofWA/ (you will need to request to join and wait for approval by administrator).
